    Verse 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 resounding
    Shall be heard on ev'ry shore,
    And the dead in Christ shall waken, to be with Him evermore

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

    Verse 2
    We are looking for the coming,
    Of our great and glorious King,
    Who shall banish from His presence
    Ev'ry dark and evil thing;
    When His justice and His mercy
    Shall prevail in all the world,
    And o'er ev'ry tribe and nation
    Shall His banner be unfurl'd

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

    Verse 3
    Now by faith we catch a vision
    Of that glad millennial reign,
    And behold the ransom'd 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,
    Through a blest eternity

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