“The Groaning World”
I find it in the time away
From all the routine noise,
The thing I come to cherish –
Time with You, God, I won’t waste it.
The world seems so cold and dark,
The pain and suffering is rampant,
We can’t escape these realities,
We can’t make it through life alone.
Is the world already dying or still groaning?
Are more people aimless, hopeless now?
Fill me with Your Spirit to speak
Truth to the lost, to show them love.
I can’t see another Savior anywhere,
Christ is the only hope sinners can have
To be saved, to be born again, to change
For the better, to be who they should be.
Your light can fill the darkest hearts
Exposing darkness, driving it out,
Illuminating all that is within and around,
You are the true Light in this dark world.
I’m coming to taste and to know
You are loving, faithful, holy,
You are good, merciful, understanding,
You’re more than I’ve imagined.
I get glimpse of Your holiness again
And I am humbled, living and true God,
You show me what I need to see,
You amaze me more each day.
Here, away from the weekday busyness
I find what I want and what You give,
You know I need You, to be with You,
It’s a privilege, an honor, a blessing.
You open my mind to consider
Things I haven’t until now.
God, You’re showing me the urgency
Of sharing Your Gospel with people.
Lord, this world needs You,
Help me and others to show
Love like You’ve shown us,
To do what You’ve called us to do.
Lead daily in Your way,
Help to fix eyes of You,
To stay faithful to You,
To live loving and obeying.
This world is groaning now,
You will return, King of kings,
Creation awaits Your arrival, Lord,
Your Bride is being prepared for You.
Shine Your light upon the world,
Move in us and bring real revival
For Your glory, for peoples’ good,
Only You can, Lord, You’re Sovereign.
