Representative Text

1 When doubt and fear assail me,
And bend my spirit low,
I know there is a Saviour,
To whom I e’er can go;
He’s promised to be with me,
No matter what betide;
Till some day when he’ll call me
To sit down at his side.

Refrain:
I’ll wait, I’ll wait,
I’ll wait for the coming of the King,
And then I’ll go to where the harps of angels ring;
Around the throne in songs of praise I’ll ever sing,
Hallelujah evermore,
Praise the mighty King!

2 When I am sorely tempted,
And know not where to flee,
My Jesus walks beside me,
And ev’ry step I see;
I see him now, not plainly,
Although I feel his might,
But some day I shall see him,
When faith is lost in sight. [Refrain]

3 No matter what befall me,
My faith in him I’ll hold,
My share in his atonement
There’s nothing can withhold;
No wonder that I’m happy,
While here I wait and sing,
For some day I’ll behold him,
My ever-living King. [Refrain]
