How Long


How long must I struggle, How long must I wait
For my heart aches to all be over.
How long must I tread this long rocky road
Till I reach those fields of clover.

I'd love to soar on Eagles wings
To heights beyond the sun
I'd smile as I passed this vale of tears
Then my spirit with God would become one.

If only I could rise on wings of faith
Beyond all I could think or feel
But I'm so weary from carrying this load
That nothing else seems real.
