The Waiting Seasons Poem by Gary James Smith


The waiting seasons with my Lord

He knoweth well my frame

He has His plan set out for me

I trust upon His name.

I wait O Lord I wait on Thee

In patience and in rest

I wonder why but then proclaim

'My God You knoweth best.'

And in His will I seek to stay

For obedience He doth bless

Look to what these hands can do

To pass the Master's test.

He knows my heart its full intent

I seek to do His will

Remaining, steadfast in prayer

Peace my heart be still.

For You, O God delight to do

Above all I can think or ask

If I do live my life for You

And swiftly do Your task.

For not one small thing ever done

If it be done for Thee

Will but receive a reward in heaven

Each believers testimony.

God's Word shall not return unto Him void

His Word abides forever

Accomplishing what it was sent to do

He is the true life Giver.

O Word of God that quickened me

That brought me my salvation

O bless it Lord in these last days
To reach each tribe and nation.
