Lyrics

I’m weary in this vale of woe,
Of sorrow everywhere I go,
But faith makes glad the darkest sky,
By whispering, He is nigh.

Refrain

I’m waiting only for Thy call,
My gracious Lord, my life, my all;
To joys beyond the golden gates,
Dear Jesus, Lord, I wait.

Some time the shadows thick and fast
Upon my sunlit skies are cast;
Then whispers, hope, forever bright,
Beyond the cloud is light.

Refrain

Oft times I feel my sinful load,
Too heavy on life’s weary road;
Then whispers love, in sweet refrain,
Trust, weary heart, again.
