A song of the stairway
1 Lord, I cry out to you out of the depths of my despair!
2 Hear my voice, O God! Answer this prayer and hear my plea for mercy.
3 Lord, if you measured us and marked us with our sins,
who would ever have their prayers answered?
4 But your forgiving love is what makes you so wonderful.
No wonder you are loved and worshiped!
5 This is why I wait upon you, expecting your breakthrough,
for your word brings me hope.
6 I long for you more than any watchman
would long for the morning light.
I will watch and wait for you, O God,
throughout the night.
I dream of a woman in a white dress with a powdered face and pearls singing in a strange language over a baby with no name.
I dream and I have the answer; I wake up and the answer flees.
I only know that the child must not yet be named.
I am that woman and the child a church.
I sing over her with love in the night. Words that are a mystery to me,
yet they rise out of me in the night
Like a watchman that waits for the morning, So my soul waits for your answers God
I stand on tiptoe, clutch the windowsill with child hands and peer eagerly
Is it time yet? Is it time for life to start?
Will you meet with me?
