Waiting With Joyful Hearts To Hear


Waiting with joyful hearts to hear our blessed Lord’s command,
Ready beneath the banner of his cross to take our stand;
Following in his steps thro’ cloudless day or darkest night,
Loyal and true to him amid the thickest of the fight.

Refrain:
Waiting for our Lord’s command,
Ready by his cross to stand,
Walking in the steps of Jesus
To the promised land.

Keeping the blood-stained cross and victor’s crown before our view,
Praying for grace and strength the conflict daily to renew;
Forward we press, that we at last may win the glorious prize
Jesus will give to all his faithful ones beyond the skies. [Refrain]

Knowing the God of battles will his soldiers true defend,
Trusting his promise that he will be with us to the end;
We will endure as seeing him who doth our place prepare,
Where we shall see him face to face, and all his glory share. [Refrain]
