Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

113. Only Waiting

1 I am waiting for the morning
Of the blessed day to dawn,
When the sorrow and the sadness
Of this fearful life are gone.

I am waiting, only waiting, ,
Till this weary life is o'er,
Only waiting for my welcome,
From my Savior on the other shore.

2 I am waiting, worn and weary,
With the battle and the strife,
Hoping, when the war is ended,
To receive a crown of life. [Refrain]

3 Waiting, hoping, trusting ever,
For a home of boundless love,
Like a pilgrim looking forward
To the land of bliss above. [Refrain]

4 Waiting for the sun to cheer me
With his pure, unmingled light,
Waiting for the saints to greet me
In their robes of spotless white. [Refrain]
