What is Waiting?

Me and all my friends
We’re rolling in the mud
We say we stand for something
But then just wait here for the flood

Now we see everything that’s going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
So we fool around until They come
To punish and to beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Debating how the world can change

It’s hard to build a city
When we have no hope or pity
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now it’s time to seek the power
To convince the doubting souls
And God, I know you’ve got it
On the pages of your scrolls
So if you hear my crying
You’ll know the settled thought
They say the plan is crazy, oh
But it may be all you’ve got

And so I’m waiting
Waiting for the world to change
Yeah, contemplating
Relating how the world can change

An angel says it’s all or nothin’
But then we skirt the talk of trustin’
So no more waiting
Waiting on the world to change

But they keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We all keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It’s time our generation
Tried out a new consideration
Do away with all the grievin’
‘Cause now there’s something to believe in
So goodbye waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Let’s not keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

The Coming Choice

God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
The Word we surely must obey
To ride the coming storm.

Ye fearful Saints, fresh courage take;
The Winds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.

His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding ev'ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.

Wry disbelief is sure to err
When miracles do come;
God is his own interpreter,
Hear thou the sounding drum!

Judge now the path that you will face
When earth and sea are tossed;
Will you the Comfort then embrace
And seek the wretched lost?

Or do you long to see the Son,
Finding your journey's rest?
Grace will abide with either one;
Choose now and e'er be blessed!
