"Waiting..."

Waiting on the Lord...
virtues there outpoured;
"So many plans to make..."
oh, what great mistake!

Waiting on the Lord-
so very much restored;
listening with hope and trust-
silence in this place a must!

Waiting on the Lord...
too many thoughts explored!
O still my busy mind-
His graces then to find!

Too often is my own device
involved in deepest prayer.
I tell the Lord my plans and then
expect Him to be there!
Rather, I should listen as
He tells me what to do,
knowing that His timing and
His motives are so true!

Teach me to wait.  Serve Him.
Teach me to wait.  Be patient.
Am I alone in needing help waiting?
