01. Must I Wait

by Phil Wickham


Close my eyes, I’m trying to listen
Oh cuz it’s been so long since I’ve heard you speak
Send your love, cover over the distance
Between You and between me

Oh how long must I wait for my love
Cuz I need You oh I need You
My heart is bursting and breaking apart
For my love

Blind my eyes, I’m looking to heaven
Holding all Your promises against my chest
I offer up the life I’ve been given
Till my last breath

Your coming is as sure as the sun is rising
Here comes the day it’s breaking in my heart
Your children are running to you

Behind the Song:
"While I was on the MercyMe tour this last fall I would love going out on the stage before anyone else was on it, turn up my amp as loud as I could, and play my guitar in the massive arenas. I’m really not much of a player, but there was just something so satisfying about hearing the sounds bounce all over these giant rooms. As I was tinkering around on the guitar one day I came across this little four chord progression that I loved right away, and that progression later turned into “Must I Wait”. Lyrically, this song was born out of a time of re-finding my relationship with the Lord. It’s sad how easy it is for me to get so tied up with “Ministry” that my actual relationship with God suffers because of it. This song comes from the day when I realized what was happening, and did something about. There’s a sense of urgent longing in these notes, and that’s exactly what I was feeling. Knowing that I didn’t want to go another day without allowing Jesus to be what he is supposed to be in my life. “My heart is bursting and breaking apart for my Love”." - Phil Wickham
