Glory Breaks Beyond

We wait for light, for brightness

Representative Text

1 We wait for light, for brightness,
We shall not wait in vain;
For glory breaks beyond the gloom,
Clear, shining after rain.

Glory, glory breaks beyond the gloom,
Thro' Christ, our Saviour, we shall triumph over death and the tomb.

2 We wait the glorious dawning,
The new, the brighter day;
We wait until the shadows have
For ever fled away. [Chorus]

3 We wait His word of promise,
A word that cannot fail;
And hope is like an anchor cast,
All firm within the vail. [Chorus]
