Representative Text

1 Long for my Saviour I've been waiting,
Long time have watched by night and day;
Feared, lest my faith and hope abating,
I should lose courage by the way.

Jesus soon is coming;
This is my song;
Cheers the heart when joys depart,
And foes are pressing strong.

2 Here in this vale of sin and sorrow
I have been wandering many years,
Still looking for that happy morrow
When God would wipe away my tears. [Chorus]

3 Ofttimes the tempter comes in power,
Fain then would lead my steps astray;
But when the clouds begin to lower,
Hope turns the darkness into day. [Chorus]

4 O it will be but little longer
I must these many woes endure;
Then let my faith and hope grow stronger;
My Father's promise still is sure. [Chorus]
