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]
