Amy Grant – Wait For The Healing lyrics

One Had vision
One came bringing it's doom
One saw napalm
One heard the man in the moon
We were children of promise
We were heirs to their dreams

Tell me, why then is the hand slow
And the dog bites, well, I don't know
But the sky will fall
And heads will roll
And it's all that we can do
To wait for the healing

Hungry hearted reason coming of age
Running headlong into the the latest rage
Always reaching within us
Claiming the answers are there

Tell me, why then is the hand slow
And the dog bites, well, I don't know
But the sky will fall
And heads will roll
And it's all that we can do
To wait for the healing
For to carry on
For to stand when all is said and done
In the shadow of the rising sun
Longing, waiting for the healing

We are children of promise
We are heirs to their dreams

Tell me, why then is the hand slow
And the dog bites, well, I don't know
But the sky will fall
And heads will roll
And it's all that we can do
To wait for the healing
For to carry on
For to stand when all is said and done
In the shadow of the rising sun
Longing, waiting for the healing

    For me this is a description of two things, frustration and when healing comes. Maybe more about perseverance than frustration. In the ancient of days when Prophets would see things and the word of God was God-breathed, God inspired, they saw the future. Probably inspired after the verses in Joel 2: 28-32, "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on earth, blood, fire, and billows of smoke (napalm). The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." Until that day comes we endure. Thus the question, Why then does the dog bite and the hand slow? Why can't we get it? Because one day, all the injustice in the world will be made just and heads will roll. For now, we wait for the healing. Prophetically speaking, read "The Four Blood Moons" by John Hagee.
