The Clock's Tick


I'm sitting here alone in my room
with nothing else to do
Praying and hearing the clock
that goes tick-tack-tick, I don't know what to do

Oh Jesus!
Teach me how to be patient
Oh Sacred heart!
Jesus, I trust in You

You said, Be still my child
and know that You're my God
Everything has been planned
Waiting to be done in His time

Then Father reminded me
About the King's life on earth
Everything wasn't laid before Him
He has to live and wait for the right time

Oh Jesus!
Lend me a heart that is patient
Oh Sacred Heart!
You know that I trust in You

Oh Jesus!
I am beginning to be impatient
As I hear the clock
That goes tick-tack-tick

Oh Sacred Heart!
I know I just have to trust You
Help me to be still and wait
Just like what I have to do

What a beautiful song. I recognize that feeling, of loneliness and striving with faith, especially when I badly need feedback and recognition but do not get any. But the frustration may give birth to another poem or another insight. And to me that is a confirmation I belong to The Lord, which popularity is not.

"On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38Whoever believes in me, as[a] the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." 39By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. ..." (John 7:37-39)
