Lyrics

I can see the storm descending on the hill tonight
Tall trees are bending to Your will tonight
Oh, let the mighty bow down
At the thundering sound of Your voice

And I can hear the howling wind and feel the rain tonight
Every drop a prophet in Your name tonight
Oh, and the song that they sing
It is washing me clean

But how long, how long
How long until this curtain is lifted?
How long, how long is this the song that we sing?
How long until the reckoning?

And I know You hear the cries of every soul tonight
You see the teardrops as they roll tonight
Down the faces of the saints
Who grow weary and faint in Your fields

And the wicked roam the cities and the streets tonight
But when the God of love and thunder speaks tonight
Oh, I believe You will come
Your justice be done

But how long, how long
How long until this curtain is lifted
How long, how long is this the song that we sing?
How long until the reckoning? Oh, the reckoning

You are holiness and grace, You are fury and rest
You are anger and love, You curse and You bless
You are mighty and weak, You are silence and song
You are plain as the day but you have hidden Your face

For how long, how long?

And I am standing in the stillness of the reckoning
The storm is past and rest is beckoning
Mighty God, how I fear You
And I long to be near You, oh Lord

How long
(How long)
How long
(How long)
How long until this burden is lifted?
(How long until the reckoning?)

How long
(How long)
How long is this the song that we sing?
(How long)
How long until the reckoning?

And I know
(How long)
I know
(How long)
And I know that I don't know what I'm asking
(How long until the reckoning?)

How long
(How long)
I long to look You full in the face
(How long)

I'm ready for the reckoning
