Waiting Mid The Shadows Patient Faithful


Waiting ‘mid the shadows, patient, faithful still;
Doing and enduring my good Master’s will,
Waiting till the trial shall my soul refine,
Till the clouds shall scatter, and the sun shall shine.

Refrain:
Waiting ‘mid the shadows, ’tis my Master’s will,
Waiting ‘mid the shadows, watching, waiting still.

Waiting ‘mid the shadows, while thro’ gates of dawn,
Triumphing, rejoicing, my beloved have gone;
Vacant in the homestead shall their place remain,
But beyond the shadows we shall meet again. [Refrain]

Waiting ‘mid the shadows, yet not all alone,
Thou art my companion, bright and holy One:
Thou amidst the desert, fountains hast unsealed,
Showing me thro’ darkness glories unreveal’d. [Refrain]

Waiting ‘mid the shadows, thro’ the lonely years,
Breaking bread in sorrow moisten’d with my tears:
Restless on my pillow, till the dawning gray,
Waiting one who wipeth all my tears away. [Refrain]
