How long will it be Lord?
Oh how long our dearest God
Until we’re in your presence
Where the Holy Angels trod?
How long until we gather
On Heaven’s bright and peaceful shore
Where there is no more pain and sorrow
And death waits for man no-more?
Your Bride is in agonyLord.
Oh She’s in such travail.
She waits upon Your coming
Like a ship waits to set sail.
We look up toward the Eastern skies
For Your sign. But we find none.
O God how long before You
Send Your Only Begotten Son?
Heaven seems so out of reach
And Oh so far away.
We wait and watch so patiently
As we go through each day.
We keep searching toward the heavens
In hopes that You’ll appear.
But all we find are empty clouds.
Oh how we need Your presence here.
Just how long will it be dear Lord
(Oh! Won’t You tell us true)
Until You come for Your sweet bride?
She yearns to be with You.
Our hearts are growing weary
Lord. Our eyes are filled with tears.
We keep longing for Your coming.
Will it be days or months or years?
This world is filled with trouble,
Lord In pain and deep despair.
We can’t wait for You to take us home
Where the Son shines everywhere.
We want to walk on streets of gold
And see those Pearly Gates
Where there’s happiness and love inside
And our dear sweet Savior waits.
