Representative Text

1 Tired the feet in the marching,
For the road has been dark and long,
Weary the hands of the working,
And weak the heart that was strong.

I wait for the coming of Jesus,
Mid shadows that gather and fall;
And wonder, so weary and waiting,
Has Jesus forgotten to call.

2 The crosses have scarr’d the shoulders,
The tears have furrow’d the face;
The eyes are dim with their watching,
Times haggar’d and heavy pace.

I wait for the coming of Jesus,
Mid shadows that gather and fall;
And wonder, so weary and waiting,
Has Jesus forgotten to call.

3 The dear ones are over the river,
My home in heaven is full;
And the home below is empty,
And the lights burn dim and dull.

I wait for the coming of Jesus,
Mid shadows that gather and fall;
And wonder, so weary and waiting,
Has Jesus forgotten to call.

4 Oh, heart, mid thy fear and doubting,
Thy homesick longing and pain,
Remember the words of the Master,
I, Jesus, will come again.

I wait for the coming of Jesus,
Mid shadows that gather and fall;
And know with exultant rapture;
My Savior is coming to call.
