A Lockdown Lament

Image result for how long

How long, O Lord?

How long, will this uncertainty last?

How long will these endless days persist?

How long before we see Your face again?

How long before You turn Your face from wrath?

How long before You yet again have mercy upon us?

How long before the light of Your Presence shines upon us?

How long before You turn towards us again?

How long will we persist in our arrogance?

How long will our hardness of heart continue?

How long will our sins come against You?

How long before we turn to You once again?

Surely You are a faithful God,

Surely, we will yet have cause to Praise Your Name?

Turn us O lord and we will be turned,

Turn us O Lord and be gracious to us.

Your Praise will yet be on the lips of Your people.

Your Name will yet be exalted.

Your people will yet rejoice in Your Deliverance.

We will yet sing songs to You, O Lord, our faithful God.
