Saviour come Thy saints are waiting




Saviour, come,
Thy saints are waiting,
Waiting for the nuptial day,
Thence their promised glory dating;
Come and bear Thy saints away.
|: Come, Lord Jesus, :|
Thus Thy waiting people pray.


Base the wish,
and vain the endeavour,
Here on earth to find our rest;
Till we see Thy face, we never
Shall or can be fully blest;
|: In Thy presence :|
Nothing shall our peace molest.


Lord, we wait
for Thine appearing;
"Quickly come" Thy people say;
Bright the prospect is and cheering,
Of beholding Thee that day;
|: When our sorrow :|
Shall for ever pass away.


Till it comes, O keep us steady,
Keep us walking in Thy ways;
At Thy call may we be ready,
On Thee, Lord, with joy to gaze;
|: And in heaven :|
Sing Thine everlasting praise.


---Alternative verses---


Saviour, come, Thy saints are waiting,
Waiting for the final day,
When new heavens and earth creating;
Thou shall banish grief away.
|: Come, Lord Jesus, :|
Thus Thy waiting people pray.


Base the wish,
and vain the endeavour,
While on earth to find our rest;
Till we see Thy face, we never
Can or shall be fully blest;
|: In Thy presence :|
Nothing shall our peace molest.


Lord, we wait for Thine appearing;
Tarry not Thy people say;
Bright the prospect is and cheering,
Of beholding Thee that day;
|: When our sorrow :|
Shall for ever pass away.


Till it comes, O keep us steady,
Keep us walking in Thy ways;
At Thy call may we be ready,
And our heads with triumph raise;
|: Then with angels :|
Sing Thine everlasting praise.
