We Are Watching For The Dawning


We are watching for the dawning
Of the grand eternal morning,
When the saints shall be caught up to meet the Lord;
Till the roll is called up yonder
In that happy land of wonder,
And the “well done faithful servant” shall be heard.

Chorus:
We are watching for the dawning,
We are watching for the dawning of the day,
We are waiting for the morning,
We are waiting for the night to pass away.

Never from the pathway turning
With our lamps all brightly burning,
We are waiting for the dawn we love so well;
While we’re waiting for the glory,
We will spread the “old, old story”,
And the love of God to ev’ry creature tell. [Chorus]

As the crowning time draws nearer,
Our Redeemer grows the dearer,
For we soon expect His glorious face to see;
In the beauty bright and vernal,
In the glory, grand, eternal,
In the Kingdom of our Lord we soon shall be. [Chorus]
