Adlai A. Loudy (1893-1984)

When I get to that city whose streets are of gold,
After life and its sorrows are thro’;
As I stand with the chorus all robed in bright glory,
I’ll be watching and waiting for you.

Refrain

I’ll be watching, I’ll be waiting,
While the Savior is crowning the faithful and true;
I’ll be watching, I’ll be waiting,
I’ll be watching and waiting for you.

I shall walk with my loved ones who’ve gone on before,
And are singing Christ’s story anew;
While I join their hosannas to our blessèd Redeemer,
I’ll be watching and waiting for you.

Refrain

In that morning of glory when Jesus shall come,
And shall crown for His children the true;
While the wicked are mourning, and the saved ones rejoicing,
I’ll be watching and waiting for you.

Refrain
