The world is waiting for Thy coming, Lord,
And while Thou lingerest Thy people, shorn
Of glory and of triumph, sadly mourn;
For with their life-destroying, ruthless horde,
Disease and dreaded famine stalk abroad.
O watchman! tell us, cometh soon the dawn?
The shadows deepen and we sit forlorn.
Will Faith indeed receive its sure reward?
From height of Zion’s tower there came reply:
Ere long Redemption’s work
Shall be complete,
For God is love. The nations, I repeat,
Are His. He heedeth well His people’s cry;
As now in heaven, on earth His reign shall be
Supreme, omnipotent o’er land and sea
Anna Hubbard Jewett Mercur
Cosmos, and Other Poems, 1893
