Wish

Back in March 2005 I was listening to this song while alone in my room and it just struck me, Jesus was really here. Everything the Bible teaches, all of it, really happened.  He came to this Earth, he lived, he died, and he rose again. That was the night I believe He began working on my heart in a way He had never done before.  God knew I was going to need him... that year was when my Mom got sick, passed away, and then I met my future husband one month later.  I needed Jesus more than ever during that year.

I was just listening to this song and was reminded of this.  Here are the lyrics! :)

WISH

Songwriters: Robert Douglas Graves; Jason Mcarthur; Joy Elizabeth Williams

For just a moment I wish I could have been there
To see Your first step, hear Your very first word
Tell me did You ever fall and scrape Your knee?
Did You know Your wounds would one day heal the world?

For just one moment I wish I could have seen You growing
Learning the ways of a capenter's son
Just a little boy gazing at the skies
Did You remember creating every one?

If You passed by, would I see a child or a king
Or would I have known?

I wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You face to face
I wish I could have been there
Just to see You, Jesus, face to face

For just one moment I wish I could have been there
When You, You left your footprints upon the waves
To walk along beside You never look away
Just Your whisper and the wind and sea obey
To see you feed the people
To feel the healing in Your touch
I wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You face to face
I wish I could have been there
Just to see You, Jesus, face to face

To hear You pray in the garden alone
Laying down Your will with each tear
To see You walk the lonely road
Willing to die for me

And in that moment I know I should have been there
You took my cross and gave Your life
But You live again, wish I could have been there
I wish that I could have seen You rise again

I wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You face to face
Someday I'll be there, I'm gonna be there
I'll see Your face, Your mercy, Your grace
Someday, someday, yeah

I'm gonna see You, Jesus, face to face
