What’s the Point?

What good does it do — what’s the point?
Why keep on doing what makes no sense,
What makes no difference? O God, what’s the use?

My child, just trust me.

I see no change, no results, no growth!
So where’s the power to make things happen?
Is something horribly wrong with me?

My child, all in good time.

When will we see something change?
When will somebody obey the gospel?
When will Jesus come for his church?

My child, when is the wrong question.

But can’t we see something happen
In the meantime, while we wait?
A sign that you are working now?

My child, open your eyes.

O God, here I am, send me.
Our Father, give us this day our bread.
Make me like the Lord Jesus Christ.

My child, that’s what I want to hear.
