1 We are watching, we are waiting
Till the mists shall clear away,
And our Lord shall come in glory
With His saints in bright array;
When the trump of God resounding,
Shall be heard on every shore,
And the dead in Christ shall waken
To be with Him evermore.

We are watching, we are waiting,
For the dawning of that glorious day,
For the coming of our Savior,
With His saints in bright array.

2 We are looking for the coming
Of our great and glorious king,
Who shall banish from His presence
Every dark and evil thing;
When His justice and His mercy
Shall prevail in all the world,
And o’er every tribe and nation
Shall His banner be unfurled. [Refrain]

3 Now by faith we catch a vision
Of that glad millennial reign,
And behold the ransomed millions
Who shall follow in His train;
And our hearts cry out, Come quickly,
That His beauty we may see,
And be with our Lord in glory
Thro’ a blest eternity. [Refrain]

19th Century "Robert Lowe Fletcher, the composer, will be at the South Avenue Congregational Church to-morrow, In the morning he will speak on 'The Conservative Life" and at night he will conduct an old-fashioned gospel singing service, when he will use some of his own compositions. Mr. Fletcher will ask the audience to assist him in the singing. Mr. Fletcher is an interesting person, and it is expected that he will attract a large number of strangers to the South Avenue Church." --from The Post-Standard, 26 November 1910 Go to person page >
