I Fear Not The Gloom Of Midnight


I fear not the gloom of midnight,
I dread not the storm at sea;
My Savior can calm the raging billows,
And illumine a path for me.
I fear not, O, I fear not,
Nor heed darksome waves of sin;
For the Angel is waiting at the portal
Of glory to let me in.

Chorus:
Waiting, waiting, waiting to let me in;
For the Angel is waiting at the portal,
Is waiting to let me in.

I heed not the world’s allurements,
While glory’s bright star I see;
I’ll steer for the bright and shining portal,
That the angel will ope for me.
I’m seeking for joys immortal,
And crowns that the righteous win;-
And the angel is waiting at the portal
Of glory to let me in. [Chorus]

I shrink not from cross or trial,
I shun not the narrow way;
I’ll watch at the ever-op’ning portal
For a glimpse of eternal day.
I’ll join in the praise eternal,
And here will my song begin;
For the angel is waiting at the portal
Of glory to let me in. [Chorus]
