    LYRICS:

    I can see the storm descending on the hill tonight
    Tall trees are bending to your will tonight
    Let the mighty bow down
    At the thundering sound of your voice

    I can hear the howling wind and feel the rain tonight
    Every drop a prophet in your name tonight
    And the words that they sing
    They are washing me clean, but

    How long until this curtain is lifted?
    How long is this the song that we sing?
    How long until the reckoning?

    And I know you hear the cries of every soul tonight
    You see the teardrops as they roll tonight
    Down the faces of saints
    Who grow weary and faint in your fields

    And the wicked roam the cities and the streets tonight
    But when the God of love and thunder speaks tonight
    I believe You will come
    Your justice be done, but

    How long until this curtain is lifted?
    How long is this the song that we sing?
    How long until the reckoning?

    You are holiness and grace
    You are fury and rest
    You are anger and love
    You curse and you bless
    You are mighty and weak
    You are silence and song
    You are plain as the day,
    But you have hidden your face—
    For how long? How long?

    And I am standing in the silence of the reckoning
    The storm is past and rest is beckoning
    Mighty God, how I fear you
    How I long to be near you, O Lord

    How long until this curtain is lifted?
    How long is this the song that we sing?
    How long until the reckoning?

    And I know that I don’t know what I’m asking
    But I long to look you full in the face
    I am ready for the reckoning.
