1 I am waiting for the morning
Of the blessed day to dawn,
When the sorrow and the darkness
Of this changeful life are gone.

I am waiting, only waiting,
Till this weary life is o'er;
Only waiting for my welcome,
From my Saviour on the other shore.

2 I am waiting, worn and weary
With the battle and the strife,
Hoping, when the warfare's over,
To receive a crown of life. [Chorus]

3 Waiting, hoping, trusting ever
For a home of boundless love
Like a pilgrim looking forward
To the land of bliss above. [Chorus]

4 Hoping soon to meet the lov'd ones,
Where the many mansions be;
List'ning for the happy welcome
Of my Saviour calling me. [Chorus]
