Lyrics

Solo and Duet

Someone is longing to find your Lord,
Hungry today for the living word,
And blindly is groping his way unto God,
Someone is waiting for you.

Duet

Waiting for you, waiting for you,
Harvest is ready, the workers are few,
Someone is waiting, is waiting for you;
Someone is waiting, is waiting for you.

Someone is burdened with guilt and sin,
Earnestly longing to be made clean;
O Christian, go forth, there are souls now to win,
Someone is waiting for you.

Duet

Let your light shine with a loving glow;
Help men to Jesus where’er you go;
If you are a Christian, you surely must know,
Someone is waiting for you.

Duet
