How long?

Creation cries out "How long?"
How long will God allow what is happening?
Questions like that differ from society to society.
Some know only torture. They are not even aware that an end is promised.
Others know only prosperity. They may not even desire an end to life as they know.
Still, creation cries out "How long?!"

How long until injustice is
not even on man's tongue?
How long until pure adoration
flows from every lung?
How long until Your glory is
the only thing in sight?
How long until Your Presence, Lord,
it be our lone delight?!

"Even so, come quickly!" every
tongue for now confess!
"EVEN SO, COME QUICKLY!" The
emotions to suppress!
"EVEN SO, COME QUICKLY!" all
creation cries in pangs!
The hope of each believing heart,
on Your return, they hang!!!

How long? Who am I to know?!
Only words have I. Not answers.
How about you? What does your heart want?
