God Will Give Strength to Those Who Wait

The waiting time may be long
And the waiting time may be hard
But renewed strength will come
When waiting upon the Lord.

The Lord gives power to the weak
And He increases strength when there’s none
To those who wait upon Him
Until the waiting time is done.

The youth shall faint and be weary
Declaring they cannot go on
Not knowing the strength in waiting
Is the greatest strength known.

The young men shall utterly fall
Not being able to rise and run
They’ll not reach God’s goal set for them
And not finish the race they had begun.

Great is the strength in waiting
For upon eagles wings these shall fly
In the renewed strength He gave them...
A strength they will not deny.

There’ll be no weariness in waiting
For in God they have placed their trust
They know more waiting is ahead for them
But waiting on God is a must.

God’s people shall walk and not faint
For they just keep looking ahead
Knowing the end of the waiting is coming
Because during the waiting He has led.

O, great is the strength in waiting
It is a lesson God’s people must learn
The end of the waiting period will come
But God’s wisdom we must discern.

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

(Isa. 40:29-31)
