I’m longing to hear You, Lord, although others may not see.
I walk the walk, and talk the talk, while thinking about Thee.
Deep down inside I think of You, and talk to You each day.
But sometimes, Father, I do not think my heart knows what to say.
This world has become desperate, Lord, crying out for peace.
Still yet, we spit, and spin, and hurt each other, while yearning for release.
Sometimes I wonder if we’re blind, or do not choose to see.
The only path that You walked on was love for all humanity.
Anger, hatred, violence, and fear are trying to seep in.
This beautiful, yet confused world seems to have thick skin.
But, deep inside our tender wounds is a sadness craving to be freed. The truth that settles my heart, Lord, is that You are all we need.
We’re longing to feel You, Lord, despite these mixed up days.
Stop the World! Come back soon! These are the words we raise.
For You, Jesus, are the only One we need to seek.
Hear our cry, Your precious children, the barren, blessed, and weak.
We do not fear the ugliness of turmoil, stains, and stings,
For we believe and hold onto our Savior, King of Kings.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
