watchmen in the morning

psalm 130_5_6.001

Click to listen to “As the Watchmen” – Jonathan and Emily Martin

From the depths I cry
In my pain I sigh
It is more dark tonight as I pray

O God, bend your ear
I pray for you to hear
As I make my appeal for mercy
If you were to count every one of my iniquities
O God, I could not stand
But with You there is forgiveness and mercy
That You may be feared

As the watchmen wait for the sun to shine
I know your Mercy will arise
I know your Mercy will arise
I’ll wait for You
I’ll wait and in your Word I’ll hope
I’ll wait and in your Word I’ll hope

I will hope in the Lord
I know He will restore
Though I am on the floor grieving sin
I know He will redeem
I know He has made me clean
Not feeling the relief, but I believe

‘Cause I know one day the sun will stop shining
And soon the morning will not appear
But on that day your Love will prove unending
And like the dawn your Love will arise
Like the dawn your Love will rise
Like the dawn your Mercy will rise

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
