168. I Am Waiting for the Dawning

  1. I am waiting for the dawning

    Of the bright and blessed day,

    When the darksome night of sorrow

    Shall have vanished far away;

    When forever with the Saviour,

    Far beyond this vale of tears,

    I shall swell the song of worship

    Through the everlasting years.

  2. 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 every shadow

    Of this sad and weary night.

  3. 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.

Something wrong? Let me know.
