How Long O Lord

How Long O Lord

I lift my heart to you oh Lord
my hands also do I lift up
my soul rises within me
my lips praise your name only

I fly to the center of your love
with the beating of my heart each day
with you in my mind and spirit
leading me in each and every way

How long oh Lord must we stay
away from you our lives are lost
come and sweep us as the dust
come and bring us to your breast

How long must we endure
this world forever filthy
How long O Lord until you come
and bring your children to safety

Until you come will will do your will
and bind each heart that you call
to your command we all must bow
and find salvation from your love
