How Long O Lord?Published by MaryEdna Thompson on Fri, 09/28/2012 - 12:57pm
HOW LONG O LORD?
How long, O Lord, can we listen to the cries of the lost?
How long do we watch as they pull against the chains
that keep them prisoners?
They thirst but water does not satisfy.
How long can we listen to their tormented cries each day and night?
They hunger but the food does not nourish their
How long, O Lord, must we sit and watch the prisoners
straining at their chains.
The sound of a voice brings neither comfort nor solace.
Come Holy Spirit and soothe their tormented souls.
Come Holy Spirit and fill them with Your presence.
Come Holy Spirit of the Living God, Lord Jesus Christ!
