I Am Waiting For The Dawning
Artist: Church of Monett
I am waiting for the dawning
of the bright and glorious 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 hymn of worship
thru 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
I behold 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;
oh, His words have thrilled my spirit,
"I will come again for Thee."
Faith can almost hear Christ's footfall,
on the threshold of the door,
and my heart, my heart is longing
to be with Him evermore.
