We Are Waiting For Thee Lord Jesus


We are waiting for thee, Lord Jesus,
Patiently as watchers linger here,
All arrayed in white adorning,
List’ning thy returning step to hear.

Refrain:
Waiting for thee, we are longing for thee,
Waiting for the breaking of the dawn;
Waiting for thee, we are longing for thee;
Waiting, watching, longing, Lord, for thee.

We are waiting for thee, Lord Jesus,
Hoping in thy presence soon to be,
With our lamps all trimmed and burning,
Watching now thy coming form to see. [Refrain]

We are waiting for thee, Lord Jesus,
List’ning for the final trumpet peal
That shall wake the slumb’ring nations,
Waiting that eternal bliss to feel. [Refrain]

We are waiting for thee, Lord Jesus,
Longing that supernal day to see,
When, with all the blest of ages,
We shall in thy hallowed presence be. [Refrain]
