Waiting In Silence

When words have been said.
When spirit had been crushed.
When tears flow.
I wait in silence.

When prayers are wordless.
When the heart is troubled.
When feelings are unheard.
I wait in silence.

When the mind is afraid.
When strength is nowhere to be found.
When grace is hard to come.
I wait in silence.

Waiting for the spirit to stand up
For tears to become smile
For prayers to be heard
For the mind to be fearless
For the heart to be graceful
To fully forgive
To completely extend mercy
To willingly give grace.

I wait in silence, my God
Answer my yearnings
You know my heart
How dark it can become
Cleanse it with your blood
That I may become like you...
