Waiting by Ada Habershon

Waiting for the coming of our Lord from Heav’n,
Looking for the One who has our sins forgiven,
Resting on the promise which His love hath given,
Waiting for the coming of our Lord from Heav’n.

Refrain

Content to wait till night has passed away,
Content to wait yet, longing for the day;
Content to wait with such full joy before,
Content to wait, the blessèd day is sure.

Listening for the voice that wakes the slumbering dead,
Every member called to join their risen Head;
Knowing He is coming quickly as He said,
Waiting for the coming of our Lord from Heav’n.

Refrain

Watching for the moment when we see His face,
Summoned at His side to take our favored place;
Robed in immortality and changed by grace,
Waiting for the coming of our Lord from Heav’n.

Refrain

Waiting thro’ the darkness on a stormy sea,
Gazing o’er the waters till His form I see;
Then to join the haven where we fain would be,
Waiting for the coming of our Lord from Heav’n.

Refrain

Looking not for signs and wonders in the skies,
Needing not the noise of war to speak Him nigh,
Only watching for the great assembling cry,
Waiting for the coming of our Lord from Heav’n.

Refrain
