Hymn/Song Information

Father I wait Thy word The sun doth




Father! I wait Thy word. The sun doth stand
Beneath the mingling line of night and day,
A listening servant, waiting Thy command,
To roll rejoicing on its silent way.


The tongue of time abides the appointed hour,
Till on our ear its solemn warnings fall;
The heavy cloud withholds the pelting shower;
Then, every drop speeds onward at Thy call.


The bird reposes on the yielding bough,
With breast unswollen by the tide of song;
So does my spirit wait Thy presence now,
To pour Thy praise in quickening life along.
