I Waited Patiently for the Lord...

I Waited Patiently for the Lord…


I waited patiently for the Lord,

 and he heard my cry…

He answered; “ALL of your needs…

 I shall supply!”


He brought me out of the pit…

 And the miry clay.

He set my feet…  On a solid rock to stay!


He put a new song in my mouth

 and praise to the Lord…

As I see more of God…

 My faith has been restored!


Blessed is he who, in the

 Lord, puts his trust.

Serving and loving HIM 

 I know that I must!


 I think of the mighty things

 he has already done…

From the early morning,

  till the setting of the sun..


I could speak of your great works.

They are more than I can remember.

Your splendor and majesty

shine today and forever!


I shall be eternally grateful

for his love extended…

You’ve forgiven all of my sins…

 And are to be commended!


You, oh my God, are holy, loving

 and very kind.

Your promises shall always

stand the test of time!


Thank you!  For  what  you’ve done…

 And so much more!

You truly are awesome! 

And are worth living for!!!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
