Oh, Suddenly

Prayed a million prayers

Fervently on benumbed knees

Before fog lifted…

Heart knows God of “suddenly”

Arrives faithful in His time


Oh soul, surrender

Fearful demands for ‘right now!’

Throughout history

God has made visitations

Fulfilling His justice, grace


He has a schedule

Ears n’er dulled, God’s hand not short

Wisely defers plans

We misread as denial

Greater mercy’s compassion


Lord, grant us new eyes

Longer farther vision Yours

You leave no one out

Refresh, increase hope’s patience

Spark trust for next “suddenly”
