All Heaven Waits

All Heaven waits with bated breath
For saints on earth to pray
Majestic angels ready stand
With swords of fiery blade
Astounding power awaits a word
From God’s resplendent throne
But God awaits our prayer of faith
That cries ‘Your will be done.’

Awake, O church, arise and pray
Complaining words discard
The Spirit comes to fill your mouth
With truth, His mighty sword
Go place your feet on Satan’s ground
And there proclaim Christ’s name
In step with heaven’s armies march
To conquer and to reign

Now in our hearts and on our lips
The word of faith is near
Let heaven’s will on earth be done
Let heaven flow from here
Come blend your prayers with Jesus’ own
Before the Father’s throne
And as the incense clouds ascend
God’s holy fire rains down

Soon comes the day when with a shout
King Jesus shall appear
And with Him all the church
From every age, shall fill the air
The brightness of His coming shall
Consume the lawless one
As with a word the breath of God
Tears down his rebel throne

One body here, by heaven inspired
We seek prophetic power
In Christ agreed, one heart and voice
To speak this day, this hour
In every place where chaos rules
And evil forces brood
Let Jesus’ voice speak like the roar
Of a great multitude
