I waited patiently
Tune: Bay of Harris
Metre: Common Metre

 

I waited patiently for God,
for God to hear my prayer;
and God bent down to where I sank
and listened to me there.

 

God raised me from a miry pit,
from mud and sinking sand,
and set my feet upon a rock
where I can firmly stand.

 

And on my lips a song was put,
a new song to the Lord.
Many will marvel, open-eyed,
and put their trust in God.

 

Great wonders you have done, O Lord,
all purposed for our good.
Unable every one to name,
I bow in gratitude.
