How long must I pray to You?
How long must I wait for You?
How long until I see Your face shining through?
I'm on my knees, begging You to notice me.
I'm on my knees, Father will you turn to me?
One tear in the dropping rain,
One voice in the sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?
One light, that's all I am
Right now I can barely stand
If You're everything You say You are
Won't You come close and hold my heart
I've been so afraid to close my eyes
So much can slip away before I say goodbye.
But if there's no other way, I'm done asking why.
So many questions without answers, Your promises remain
I can't sleep but I'll take my chances to hear You call my name
Father could You hold my heart?
