Representative Text

1. Dear Savior, thro’ the far-spent night
We wait and watch for Thee;
The light of earth for us has set
Behind dark Calvary.

2. We yearn to see the rosy dawn
Whose promise beams afar;
And ever, with expectant hearts,
Desire the Morning Star.

3. Oh dawn most fair! Oh day most bright!
Across the eastern sky
The Advent-glory soon shall break—
Redemption draweth nigh.

4. It may be sooner than we think
Shall end the long delay!
It may be that the Bridegroom-King
E’en now is on His way!
