LYRICS:

Blessed are those who have not seen

And yet believe

That time and space have no sway

In what will be

 

You’re not a man that you should lie

Or change your mind

So I look up and count the stars again

For the hundredth time

 

And now deep cries out to deep

Help me hold on in faith ‘til I see

 

I wait for the Lord

My soul does wait

And in his Word do I hope

My soul waits for the Lord

More than watchmen for the morning

Indeed more than watchmen for the morning

 

This body is as good as dead

This womb is barren

But what excuse have I to doubt

What you have spoken

 

In hope against hope I believe

That what doesn’t exist will be

 

I wait for the Lord

My soul does wait

And in his Word do I hope

My soul waits for the Lord

More than watchmen for the morning

Indeed more than watchmen for the morning

 

Though the vision tarries I still wait in hope

For it will come and not delay

And in this hour in the garden

I will watch and I will pray

O Lord, display your power

Romans 4:17​-21 - ...God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that do not exist. In hope against hope he believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” Without becoming weak in faith he contemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb; yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.

 

Habakkuk 2:2-3 - Then the Lord answered me and said, “Write down the vision and inscribe it clearly on tablets, so that one who reads it may run.

Luke 22:39-46 - And He came out and went, as was His habit, to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. Now when He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you do not come into temptation.” And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground. When He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow, and He said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you do not come into temptation.”
