How Long? is from Bifrost Arts album Lamentations – Simple Songs Of Lament And Hope Vol 1.
There was never a volume 2, and Isaac Wardell’s creative efforts seem to have moved to the Porter’s Gate Worship Collective.

The lyrics:
How long? Will You turn Your face away?
How long? Do You hear us when we pray?
On and on, still we walk this pilgrim way – How long?

How long ’til Your children find their rest?
How long ’til You draw them to Your breast?
We go on holding to Your promises – How long?

(Refrain)
‘Til You wipe away the tears from ev’ry eye
‘Til we see our home descending from the sky
Do we wait in vain?
Jesus, give us hope again!

How long ’til Your word will still the storm?
How long ’til You bare Your mighty arm?
How we groan ’til You snatch us from the thorns – How long?

How long? Sweet the dawn that ends the race.
How long? Weak our hearts but strong our legs.
Looking on – great that cloud of witnesses! How long?
