299 Awaiting God’s Good News

Verse 1

With yearning eyes, You call urgently.

Facing cruel mankind, You speak Your heart.

For a sole desire You suffer great wrongs,

pouring forth Your hope and Your heart’s blood.

Verse 2

You never expect too much, You give all,

no stranger to pain and persecution.

O Holy One, who compares to Your beauty?

Your great work will be honored forever.

Chorus

How could I abandon You to seek so-called freedom?

I would rather suffer to redress Your grieving heart.

How could I abandon You to seek so-called freedom?

When flowers bloom again, I’ll listen to Your good news.

Verse 3

In sin I fell but I rise in the light.

You exalt me so, I am so grateful.

God in flesh, He suffers, how much more should I?

If I yielded to darkness, how would I see God?

Chorus

How could I abandon You to seek so-called freedom?

I would rather suffer to redress Your grieving heart.

How could I abandon You to seek so-called freedom?

When flowers bloom again, I’ll listen to Your good news.

Bridge

When I think of Your words, they make me long for You.

Whenever I see Your face, in my guilt I salute You.

Chorus

How could I abandon You to seek so-called freedom?

I would rather suffer to redress Your grieving heart.

How could I abandon You to seek so-called freedom?

When flowers bloom again, I’ll listen to Your good news.
