Representative Text

1 Till the day break and the shadows flee away,
Waiting for the shining of the sun’s first ray;
Looking for the brightness that proclaims Him near,
Longing for the Presence which has grown so dear.

Refrain:
Till the day break and the shadows flee away,
Till the day break when He comes again for me;
Till the day break and the shadows flee away,
Longing for the moment when His face I see.

2 Through the hours of darkness, waiting for the light,
For the cloudless sunrise that will end the night;
Watching for the morning when our Lord shall come,
And His voice will call us to the heavenly home. [Refrain]

3 Many of His waiting ones in Him now sleep,
Till the night be over, earth their dust will keep;
But at day break, they from out their graves shall rise,
And with all His people meet Him in the skies. [Refrain]

4 He is waiting patiently for that bright day,
When the earthborn shadows will have fled away;
When He will receive us to Himself at last—
No more separation, sin and sorrow past. [Refrain]
