I Will Wait for You (Psalm 130)

Words and Music by Keith Getty, Jordan Kauflin, Matt Merker and Stuart Townend

 

INTRO

Lord, from the depths I call to You

Lord, hear me from on high

And give attention to my voice

When I for mercy cry

 

Out of the depths I cry to You

In darkest places I will call

Incline Your ear to me anew

And hear my cry for mercy, Lord

 

Were You to count my sinful ways

How could I come before Your throne

Yet full forgiveness meets my gaze

I stand redeemed by grace alone

 

CHORUS

I will wait for You

I will wait for You

On Your word, I will rely

I will wait for You

Surely wait for You

Till my soul is satisfied

 

So put your hope in God alone

Take courage in His power to save

Completely and forever won

By Christ emerging from the grave

 

CHORUS

 

Now He has come to make a way

And God Himself has paid the price

That all who trust in Him today

Find healing in His sacrifice

 

CHORUS

 

I will wait for You

I will wait for You

Through the storm and through the night

I will wait for You

Surely wait for You

For Your love is my delight

 

OUTRO

I pray my soul waits for the Lord

My hope is in His word

More than the watchman waits for dawn

My soul waits for the Lord
