I'm longing for Jesus to tell me.
Your work in My vineyard is through.
You kept in your heart what I gave you
By leading My chosen and few.
I long to feel His power come upon me.
When I'm weary with burdens I bear,
I long for the peace that He gives me.
I know He will free me from care.
I long to hear Him call in the nighttime
When the world with its cares is asleep.
I long to be aroused from my slumber.
Hear the Shepherd as He calls for his sheep.
I long to hear Him say, "You were faithful
To all that I left in your care.
Enter in; your reward now is waiting.
You gained it through faith and through prayer."
