How long, O Lord, shall I cry
til you come and rescue me?
I see violence on every side
In this Valley of Iniquity

Where the law is paralyzed
And justice cannot be found
For the wicked surround the righteous
Who hold fast on holy ground

[chorus] I want to know what’s on the other side
I want more of you in my life
Leave the things of this world behind
And give me more, more, more – of you

I will watch through the dark of night
To hear the prayers of the righteous rise
I will take my stand at my post
To watch and wait for the Lord of Hosts

He speaks stars into being with a word
He calms the heart of a fearful child
I know He hears me when I cry
Though I sit alone in the night
