I Would Be With You Again

I long for the day I would be with you again
though Im in the midst of the war I will be confident
You’ve told me you’ll be coming back so I wait
It is your will to let me wait and rest in your embrace
For I only trust in your heart and nothing else

I know everything will be okay for you are sovereign
there are times i cannot comprehend your ways
but when you intervene I am only amazed
the understanding I have gain change me everyday
even though you are away, your love is evident

Oh gone are the days of my former circumstances
where I lay in my bed and weep bitter prayers
for whatever is to come has already been named
for in my heart you have written your promises
You have filled my existence with such effervescence

Even when you are far away, my love for you grows stronger
Our distant love is an unbreakable kind and it’s the greatest
From three days of separation and on the third day to forever
How incredible, while away, in my toughest struggle, in battle
I still hope for the day I would be with you again

Until only you are seen

Have been humbled for a while
Seen my own iniquities
But here I am still alive
With such wanting and longing

To be deeply in love
Until only you are seen
have our lives intertwined
To keep my heart steady

Wandering in the oceans
Persevering and waiting
I don’t understand it now
but soon, it will be revealed

Have some patient little one
as you have said in my sleep
For you know Im still undone
So I trust your artistry

The slow moving of the sun
Makes me thirsty, Makes me seek
Process me in the desert land
Until only you are seen

To my dearest one above
In the process of waiting
Let it all fade away & be gone
Until only you are seen
