Lyrics

They that Wait upon the Lord (Lyrics & Music by Steve Laurie: 2/28/88)

When a mountain stands in front of me
Or a chasm oh so wide
And my spirit’s overwhelmed within me
And my heart is desolate
When I fear and begin to tremble
At the trial that faces me
That’s when I trust and I surrender
And I wait upon the Lord

And they that wait upon the Lord
Shall renew their strength
They shall mount up with wings as eagles
They shall run and not be weary
They shall walk and not faint

Some trust in chariots and some trust in men
But I will remember the name of the Lord my God
When the chasm seems impassable
And the mountain oh so high
That’s when I trust and I surrender
And I wait upon the Lord

And they that wait upon the Lord
Shall renew their strength
They shall mount up with wings as eagles
They shall run and not be weary
They shall walk and not faint

I waited patiently for the Lord and He inclined unto me
And He heard my cry and brought me up out of the miry clay
And He has put a new song in my mouth
Even praise unto our God
Blessed is the man that makes the Lord his trust

And they that wait upon the Lord
Shall renew their strength
They shall mount up with wings as eagles
They shall run and not be weary
They shall walk and not faint
