How Long, O Lord?

Down on my knees

I lift my eyes.

Out of desperation

I pray You hear my cries.

The pain I feel,

Sadness I always bear.

How long must I wait,

To feel You care?

My trust in You

Will never falter.

Every inch of this house

Is suddenly my altar.

I know Your love.

I feel You here.

Please, Lord, conquer

Because the enemy is near.

Though I am fearful

Of my everyday

I am confident

You will help me find a way.

Steadfast love,

You continue faithfully.

My salvation in You,

Do You find it favorably?

My praises will only be Yours

For You are my strength.

How long, O Lord,

Until I see Your face?

This is beautiful! “Every inch of this house is suddenly my altar” . . . Love this line. Our “everyday” becomes a place to come to Him.
