Holy One, grant me
Patience in the waiting
Raise me to be
A child of hope
New life takes time to root and grow and bear fruit
It takes trust and tending
Give me eyes to see beyond the now to the then
Give me your eyes
Psalm 130:5-6 (NIV)
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word, I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
Waiting patiently in expectation is the foundation of the spiritual life.
– Simone Weil
Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work.
– Peter Marshall
