downloadOn Holy Tuesday, the Orthodox Church celebrates the parable of the ten virgins, emphasizing the need to watch and wait–looking forward to the garden. This song is from Jon Thurlow, and I think it captures the sentiment exactly.

(Disclaimer: Jon Thurlow is a musician with the International House of Prayer, an organization with which I have serious problems. I in no way, shape, or form endorse them or any of their artists, beliefs, teachings, or productions. But I really like this song.)

Lyrics follow below the video:

There is coming a day
When the Bridegroom is taken away
In that day they will mourn
In that day they will fast

And they will say,
“Things as they are are not okay
When someone is missing, someone is absent
Things are not okay right now

And they won’t be ’til You come back”
