When Will Dawn Break?


How long, O Lord?
Don’t hide Yourself in times of trouble
Answer the cry of my soul
For I seek You with all my heart

In silent darkness
Night drags on
Pain lurks in the shadows
Will there be light?

Trials come in waves
Over my pounded soul
Crushing unseen dross
Until I’m stripped of all

Waiting in silence
Reaching to heaven
Hear me when I call
Will it always be night?

When will dawn break?
Then You will transform sorrow
As if by crushing metamorphosis
To soaring new joy

    Great poem Susan! Sometimes the night is so dark and all I long for is the first sliver of light. I love how the closer we are to God the easier it is to acknowledge the faintest light.
