7236. We Are Watching

1. We are watching, we are waiting,
For the bright prophetic day;
When the shadows, weary shadows
From the world shall roll away.

Refrain
We are waiting for the morning,
When the beauteous day is dawning;
We are waiting for the morning,
For the golden spires of day.
Lo! He comes! see the King draw near;
Zion, shout! the Lord is here.

2. We are watching, we are waiting,
For the star that brings the day;
When the night of sin shall vanish,
And the shadows melt away. [Refrain]

3. We are watching, we are waiting,
For the beauteous King of day;
For the chiefest of ten thousand,
For the Light, the Truth, the Way. [Refrain]

4. We are watching, we are waiting,
For the time so long foretold,
When with saved ones of all ages,
We shall walk the streets of gold. [Refrain]

5. We are watching, we are waiting,
For an earth made free from strife,
Then the power of Satan ended,
We shall have eternal life. [Refrain]
