My mouth is dry
My heart is faint
Why do You seem to hide Your face from me?
The days drift by
Yet time stands still
And all the while I’m trying to believe
Meet me now and show me how to close my eyes and see
On that day I will rise
I will stand before Your throne
And in awe I will fall
When these eyes behold the Lord of All
On that great and wondrous
Sacred and glorious day
And though some days
I feel alone
You take my hand in Yours and gently lead
Your love is strong
Your plan is sure
You promised you’d prepare a place for me
I'm on my knees, begging please, show me what will be
On That Day
This World is Not My Home
