11940. We Wait His Coming

1 We wait the coming of the Lord,
The Savior reigning now above;
The promise of His holy Word,
He shall confirm in truth and love.

Refrain:
O wait, calmly wait, for He will come;
O wait, He will come and bring us home;
O wait, calmly wait, for He will come;
O wait, He will come and bring us home.

2 We wait the coming of our friend,
Who loves us with immortal love;
And shall Himself from Heav’n descend,
And bring us to our home above. [Refrain]

3 We wait the coming of the King,
Who holds the key of every grave,
Who will the palms of victory bring,
And all His loyal people save. [Refrain]
