How Long? from EMU Music, a song of yearning expectant hope.

The lyrics:
1
How long, how long
Will you be silent, O Lord? Silent, O Lord?
How long, how long
Will you let evil remain, O Ancient of Days?
Pre-chorus
How long, O Mighty One, how long?
You’re the God who saves, the God who made a way!
Chorus
Restore us Lord, for our hope is in your name
In you our hearts will learn to sing
Though nations rage and humans fade, you remain
All our hope is in your Son
We take shelter in your grace
Though all around is darkest night, you save
2
How long, how long
Will your people be scorned? Your people be scorned?
How long, how long
Will our bodies decay, O Ancient of Days?
Pre-chorus
Chorus
Bridge
How long, O Mighty One, how long?
You’re the God who saves, the God who made a way!
Return, Emmanuel, return!
Your people wait, watchful now, we pray
Chorus
