How Long?



Zephaniah 1, Psalms 90 and 93, 2 Peter 3 and Rev 6:10
 
1. How long until injustice is put right
How long until we see the morning light
How long until we see the wicked fall?
How long until you come and fix it all?

When will the searing burning light
Burn off the darkness of this night?
                       
The end of evil, dark powers fall
The earth and heaven will be reborn
We’ll be made new, body and soul
And we’ll be coming  home    
Until then O Lord your people cry
How long?
 
2. You warn a day of darkness and of gloom
Will come…your jealous fire will consume
There’ll be a  great outpouring of your wrath
We’ll see the end of all who live on earth
 
We’ll see the searing burning light
Burn off the darkness of this night

3. You hold the key to our eternal fate
We know Your love and mercy make you wait
You long for more and more to seek the truth
and turn to find the shelter found in You
 
 
Your cross has made your people pure
And now our future is secure
 
The end of evil dark powers fall
The earth and heavens will be reborn
We’ll be made new body and soul
And we’ll be coming home
Until then O lord your people cry
