Fallen.
Bowed down.
Yet looking.

Waiting...

The eyes of all wait for You.
The eyes of all.
Looking, watching, expecting.

Waiting...

You say You will supply, give in due season.
You say You will open Your hand and satisfy.
Sustain and satisfy with favor.

Waiting...

Harder to pray for Your will to be done in the waiting.
Desperate to see Your hand move in the waiting.
Trusting in what only You can see in the waiting.

Waiting...

Reaching out just the same.  Resting.  Being still.  Quiet.
There's a peace that only comes in the waiting.
Resting in the peace that only comes here.

Waiting...

I will look ahead.
I will look up.
I will be productive still.

Waiting...

I will praise You in the waiting.
I will affectionately and gratefully praise You in the waiting.
I shall sing.  I shall sing aloud.



Every day [with its new reasons] will I bless You [affectionately and gratefully praise You]; yes, I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord and highly to be praised; and His greatness is [so vast and deep as to be] unsearchable.
 
I will declare Your greatness.
They shall pour forth [like a fountain] the fame of Your great and abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of Your rightness and justice.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness.
The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works [the entirety of things created].

The Lord upholds all those [of His own] who are falling and raises up all those who are bowed down.
The eyes of all wait for You [looking, watching, and expecting] and You give them their food in due season.
You open Your hand and satisfy every living thing with favor.

The Lord is [rigidly] righteous in all His ways and gracious and merciful in all His works.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him sincerely and in truth.
He will fulfill the desires of those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him; He also will hear their cry and will save them.
