Hymn/Song Information

I am waiting for the dawning




I am waiting for the dawning,
Of the bright and blessèd day,
When the darksome night of sorrow
Shall have vanished far away;
When for ever with the Saviour,
Far beyond this vale of tears,
I shall swell the song of worship
|: Through the everlasting years. :|


I am looking at the brightness,
See, it shineth from afar,
Of the clear and joyous beaming
Of the “Bright and Morning Star.”
Through the dark grey mist of morning
Do I see its glorious light;
Then away with ev’ry shadow
|: Of this sad and weary night. :|


I am waiting for the coming
Of the Lord who died for me;
O His words have thrilled my spirit,
“I will come again for thee,”
I can almost hear His footfall
On the threshold of the door,
And my heart, my heart is longing
|: To be with Him evermore. :|
