I’ll Just Have to Wait


So Steven Curtis Chapman wrote this song after the death of his daughter. I lost my Gramps this past year and this song completely expresses the way I’ve been thinking about him lately. I miss him dearly, but even though he isn’t here now, I know I will see him some day. I just have to wait a little longer. I did change some of the words to make it fit my story a little better, but not many.

Well I can’t wait to see your smile again
The one where your eyes disappear
Along with all my troubles
And I can’t wait to hear you sing a song
Mainly Jesus loves me or a song you learned up there

But I, oh I, just have to wait
Cuz I know that day is coming
So I, oh I, just have to wait

I can’t wait to hear Granny laugh
The way that only you can make her laugh
When you get silly

And I can’t wait to see you in her arms
And know the wounds so deep inside her heart
Are sealed for good

But I, oh I, just have to wait
Cuz I know that day is coming
So I, oh I, just have to wait
Ohhh

I can’t wait to dance with you again
Knowing that this time we dance
Will never have to end

But I, oh I, just have to wait
Cuz I know that day is coming
So I, oh I, just have to wait

I can’t wait to see your grandkids play
The way they do when all of you
Are playing altogether

And I can’t wait to watch your family’s faces
When we can finally see with our own eyes
That everything’s okay

I just have to wait
Cuz I know that day is coming
I just have to wait

For Gramps: I miss you dearly, but I know you are trodding those golden paths with all your favorite Godly people. I wish I could see you again- and I know that one day I will-  I’ll just have to wait until God calls me home too. I love you.
