You went away to make a place
Where we could live in peace
You said You would be back real soon
But could You come now, please.
You left Your Spirit for my Guide
To keep my wand’ring heart
From chasing others while I wait –
Save all for you – not part
You said Your Father had to check
The work before You’d come.
You did not know when He’d approve
Of all the work You’ve done
So then I wait for You, my King,
Keep pure my heart for One,
Until our Father knows the time,
Until for me You come.
Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
“Father, teach me to patiently wait for Jesus’ return. Help me to be faithful while I am waiting. Let my heart not be drawn away from Your truth. Help me to work diligently in the works You have laid out for me.”
