Waiting On The Lord
have not heard, nor perceived by the ear,
neither hath the eye seen, O God,
beside thee, what he hath prepared
for him that waiteth for him.
Are there any among the vanities of the
Gentiles that can cause rain?
or can the heavens give showers?
art not thou he, O Lord our God?
therefore we will wait upon thee:
for thou hast made all these things.
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed
to and fro, and carried about with every wind
of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning
craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Our soul waiteth for the Lord:
he is our help and our shield.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
for thou art the God of my salvation;
on thee do I wait all the day.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew
their strength; they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may
be gracious unto you, and therefore will he
be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you:
for the Lord is a God of judgment:
blessed are all they that wait for him.
I waited patiently for the Lord;
and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait
upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me;
for I wait on thee.
For we through the Spirit wait
for the hope of righteousness by faith.
Be patient therefore, brethren,
unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth for
the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it,
until he receive the early and latter rain.
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of
God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.
Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and
judgment and wait on thy God continually.
But if we hope for that we see not,
then do we with patience wait for it.
And it shall be said in that day,
Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him,
and he will save us: this is the Lord;
we have waited for him, we will be glad
and rejoice in his salvation.
I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast
done it: and I will wait on thy name;
for it is good before thy saints.
By the Grace of God, go we.
