Lord, please teach me patience, and don't make me wait,
'Cause waiting for things is just something I hate!
Help me to wait upon you when I pray,
Though I'm always convinced there's no time like today;
Remind me of all of the pain and the worry,
Of messes I've made 'cause I was in such a hurry;
Help me abide in your unfailing love,
Knowing the view is more clear from above;
Calm my mind and my heart, that I might not get stressed,
Help me to trust that your timing is best;
Lord, please teach me patience, and please don't be late,
'Cause waiting on you is often something I hate!
