Are We Waiting?

Representative Text

1 Are we waiting for the coming of the Lord, my brother?
Are we walking in the Spirit? do we love each other?
In the union of affection are we bound together?
Are we trading with the talents that He gave?

Lo, He comes! the day is nigh!
Look ye for Him ev'ry eye!
Coming with the clouds of glory,
All the earth shall see Him!
Hallelujah! for the coming draweth nigh!

2 Let us trim our lamps, my brother, and abide His coming,
Neither let the blessed Master find us in sin roaming,
Whether coming at the midnight or at bright day-dawning,
Let's be ready for the coming of the King. [Refrain]

3 We'll rejoice that He is coming, tho' we now see trouble;
For the sorrows of the present there's rejoicing double;
To repay our ev'ry sorrow Christ our Lord is able;
Then be patient till the coming of the King. [Refrain]
