Wish

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?  (Isaiah 53:3-9)

For just one moment, I wish I could have seen You growing,
learning the ways of a carpenter’s son.  (Mark 6:1-6)
Just a little Boy gazing at the stars,
did You remember creating every one?  (Psalm 8:3-4, Psalm 33:6, Psalm 147:4)

If You passed by, would I have seen a Child or a King?
Would I have known?

I wish I could have been there
my only wish is to see You, face to Face!
Wish I could have been there
just to see You, Jesus, face to Face…

For just a moment, I wish I could have been there
when You left Your footprints upon the waves (Matthew 14:25)
To walk along beside You and never look away,
just Your whisper and the wind and sea obey (Mark 4:39)

To see You feed the people (Matthew 14:19-20, Matthew 15:36-37)
To feel Your healing in Your touch (Luke 6:19, Luke 22:50-51)

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

To hear You pray in the garden alone:  (Matthew 26:36-44, Mark 14:32-40)
laying down Your will with each tear…
To see You walk that lonely road
willing to die for me…
(John 11:49-52, Romans 6:23)

And in that moment I know I should have been there –
You took my cross and gave Your life…
And you live again, oh and You live again!  (Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24 & John 20)

Wish I could have been there
my only wish is to see You rise again!
Wish I could have been there
my only wish is to see You, Jesus, face to Face

Someday I’ll be there, I’m gonna be there:
I’ll see Your Face, Your mercy, Your grace…
Someday, someday I’m going to see You, Jesus, face to Face (Ephesians 1:10, Revelation 21:3)
