Steven Curtis Chapman – Wait lyrics

[Verse 1]
You wonder when the Lord will renew the strength within you
You wonder how, how can He use you as you are
Seems like you're wasting precious time
But then a voice comes to remind you to...

[Chorus]
Wait, wait, wait on the Lord
You will understand in time
Why you must wait
Wait, wait, wait on the Lord
Yes, He hears you
But for now you must wait on the Lord

[Verse 2]
Answers come slowly to your cries of desperation
But time is His tool, teaching the greatest lessons learned
So let Him do His work in you
And watch the miracles come true as you...

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
And He wants you to know that
They that wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength
They will rise up with wings as eagles
They will run, not get weary
They will walk and not faint
That's a promise to us when we wait

[Chorus]

    This song is based on Isaiah 40:31. Actually, the bridge is an almost verbatim rendering of that passage. It reads like this: "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

    Overall, Isaiah 40:31 is one of the most encouraging verses in the Bible and hence, it is quoted relatively often. I think this song does an excellent job at bringing out the spirit of that much-loved verse.
