“In His Time” by The Hicks

I mentioned the blessing of hearing The Hicks sing at the Southern Gospel Jubilee one year, and three of their songs ministered to me in a special way.  Besides “No Need To Doubt Him Now,” a second one is “In His Time.”  Another reminder that God’s delays are not denials!

…………………….

In His Time

The Hicks

…………………….

Mary and Martha stood by the grave

And they wondered why their Master had delayed.

For they knew if He’d been there in answer to their cry,

Their dear brother Lazarus would not have died.

…………………….

It was four days before Jesus through Bethany passed by

And there He found them with tears in their eyes,

And with the tender compassion and the sound of His voice,

He commanded the stone away and Lazarus came forth.

…………………….

The trial that you’re facing may be a child who’s gone astray

Or it may be a loved one who’s never found their way

Or it could be a problem that matters just to you.

God will hear the prayer you pray and here’s what He’ll do.

…………………….

In His time He will answer, in His time He will hear.

It may be today He’ll walk through your Bethany.

So don’t lose your faith though your patience be tried;

Your answer may seem delayed but your prayer’s not denied.
