Waiting (A poem to the glory of God based on Acts 1:1-11)
Waiting, wondering, watchful,
Looking to the sky,
We couldn’t go where He was going
And we sometimes wondered, why?
It wasn’t the time to go with Him
We’d got a job to do.
A life to live, a message to give
Send your spirit, help us through.
Expecting, anticipating, waiting,
Not knowing when’s the time.
But knowing He’ll be with us
Through His bread and wine.
The message of His love and purpose
Is needing to be shared.
A job to do, a task or two.
A coming now declared.
Waiting, poised and ready,
Not knowing where or when,
But knowing and believing
That He will come again.
The message that we have to share
It’s a taste of things to come.
To deliver, from our giver
Your will, will be done.
Waiting, wondering, watching
For when you’ll come again,
Looking, listening, longing,
for your power to reign.
