Let Me Clear My Throat

I wait.
Dear Lord, Thy ways
Are past finding out,
Thy love too high.
O hold me still
Beneath Thy shadow.
It is enough that Thou
Lift up the light
Of Thy countenance.
I wait –
Because I am commanded
So to do. My mind
Is filled with wonderings.
My soul asks, “Why?”
But then the quiet word,
“Wait thou only
Upon God.”
And so, not even for the light
To show a step ahead,
But for Thee, dear Lord,
I wait.
Elisabeth Elliot

How long, Lord, must I wait?
Never mind, child. Trust Me.
