12-9-14 Wait on the Lord

Back of the Choir

wait on the lord

If someone strikes you, turn the other cheek,

And if they strike again, then bare your head,

Then wait upon the Lord while you stand meek,

For He’s the final judge for what’s ahead.

Resist temptation’s lure to seek revenge;

Reprisal’s not a stone you need to throw.

Let God alone your injuries avenge,

For vengeance is the Lord’s, you ought to know.

You want the Lord to save you from all wrong,

And in the end He will, this much is true.

The time for judgment’s soon, it won’t be long;

It is the fire that we will all pass through.

Repent for all the sins that you have done

And beg the Lord’s forgiveness through His Son.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Say not thou, I will recompense evil; 

but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

Proverbs 20:22 KJV
