1 O Jesus, Redeemer, we’re waiting for thee,
Hear thou, and draw near as we pray—
Tho’ guilty, unworthy and helpless are we,
While passing, O Lord, come this way.
Dear Savior, we’re waiting, waiting, waiting,
Dear Savior, we’re waiting, waiting, waiting,
Dear Savior, dear Savior, we’re waiting, all waiting for thee.

2 With sorrow we mourn for the sins of the past,
So doubting and blind have we been,
Now earnestly pleading, we’re waiting at last
For Jesus, the Savior from sin.
Dear Savior, we’re waiting, waiting, waiting,
Dear Savior, we’re waiting, waiting, waiting,
Dear Savior, dear Savior, we’re waiting, all waiting for thee.

3 With longing we’re waiting thy coming, O Lord—
Without thee we perish and die—
Poor sinners around us believe not thy word,
Thy know not that Jesus is nigh. [Chorus]
Dear Savior, we’re waiting, waiting, waiting,
Dear Savior, we’re waiting, waiting, waiting,
Dear Savior, dear Savior, we’re waiting, all waiting for thee.

4 Believing, still waiting, thy promise we have,
Thou loving, compassionate Son—
“My hand is not shorten’d, I’m mighty to save,”
Then come to each wondering one.

Solo:
Behold I stand at the door and knock:
If any man hear my voice and open the door,
I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me.
Amen.

5 We welcome thee, Savior, then thousand times o’er,
Thou Blessed One enter within;
Now cleanse us, possess us, and use us the more,
Deliver’d forever from sin.
Dear Savior, we welcome, welcome, welcome,
Dear Savior, we welcome, welcome, welcome,
Dear Savior, dear Savior, we welcome, give welcome to thee.
