We Are Waiting For The Savior


We are waiting for the Savior,
As the watcher waits the light,
When the sun in all his glory
Drives away the shades of night;
We are waiting, only waiting,
For the Master to appear,
Only waiting for His presence
Full of comfort and of cheer.

Chorus:
We are waiting,
We are watching,
We are ready for the Master to appear,
We are waiting,
We are watching,
For the coming of our Lord is drawing near.

We are waiting for the Savior,
For our hearts are sick of sin,
And there’s no one here to heal us
Of the pain we feel within;
There is no one but the Savior,
Who can cleanse the guilty soul,
Take away the troubled conscience,
Make the broken spirit whole. [Chorus]

We are waiting for the Savior,
In our sorrow and our grief,
Waiting for the great Consoler,
Who will bring a sweet relief;
Who will give for all our mourning,
Oil of His abounding joy;
For our heaviness of spirit,
Songs of praise the saints employ. [Chorus]

We are waiting for the Savior,
For the night comes on apace;
Longer grow the somber shadows
‘Round our earthly dwelling-place,
Soon we’ll take the happy journey,
On the bright and shining sea:
And how gladly, blessed Savior,
Since we wait to sail with Thee. [Chorus]
