Verse 1
O Lord how long must we wait?
E'er you return again;
We have nearly grown weary
As we wait thy return;
O Lord, how long must we wait?
That we shall expect Thee,
Many have grown cold in faith,
That thou will yet come back

Verse 2
O Lord how long must we wait,
When Thou call upon us?
Those that are expecting Thee;
Will be glad to see Thee
Wake ye virgin that's asleep,
Go proclaim His coming
That all those asleep may know,
That Thou will yet come back

Verse 3
Rise up and light up thy lamp
Put on your white garment;
Be prepared for Him to meet
For He will soon appear;
O Lord, how long must we wait
E'er you return again?
Do not let us grow weary,
Until we all see Thee
