Learning to Wait


And Calls us to His Side

"Oh, what’s the use?”
I ask God while I'm praying
Since you know the way
That things must be
Then in quiet I listen
For an answer from
The one who gave Himself for me

For once He prayed till sweat Flowed like blood drops
Through the night, with sorrows
He was tossed
Then He surrendered all that
He had wished for
Our lives to save
And for our sin’s full cost

And then as dawn
Had still not fully wakened
On the third day
Before the sun was bright
The tomb was opened
So we could see inside that
He is alive
And calls us to His side!

But as I rav'd and grew more fierce and wilde - At every word,
Me thoughts I heard one calling, Child! - And I reply'd, My Lord.
George Herbert - excerpt from The Collar
