“I Will Wait”

Released April, 2023


This song’s story is all about waiting on God’s timing, but the song itself is an expression of our choice to enter the presence of God… and wait. It’s about what happens when we spend time with Him and He transforms us.

This is God’s call to your heart.

“I Will Wait”

Words and music: Katie M. Peters

Lord I come to You; I give You all I am
My successes and my failures I lay down
I surrender my perceptions; I’m trusting in Your grace
So I enter Your presence to wait

In the stillness, in the quiet
All my shame falls away as I seek Your face
I hear You calling, gentle whispers
You’re beckoning me to Your heart

When I come to You, You wrap Your love around me
And the breath of Your Spirit lights my soul
Then my guilt and misconceptions dissolve in Your embrace
And what’s left of me falls at Your feet

I am broken, by Your mercy
For it’s here in my weakness You show Your power
You take my piece, fit me together
As a masterpiece I’ve never known
In the stillness, in the quiet
All my shame falls away as I seek Your face
I hear You calling, gentle whispers
You’re beckoning me to Your heart
I will wait, I will wait

In the stillness, in the quiet
All my shame falls away as I seek Your face
I hear You calling, gentle whispers
You’re beckoning me to Your heart
I am broken, by Your mercy
For it’s here in my weakness You show Your power
You take my pieces, fit me together
As a masterpiece I’ve never known
In the stillness, in the quiet
All my shame falls away as I seek Your face
I hear You calling, gentle whispers
You’re beckoning me to Your heart

I will wait
