Lyrics

Watch ye and wait, O brethren of God,
Wait for the coming of Jesus our Lord;
Ages have passed, yet bright grows the dawn,
Jesus has promised to come in the morn.

Refrain

Wait! wait! Jesus will come,
Soon will our bridegroom descend from His throne;
Wait! wait! Jesus will come,
Jesus is coming again to His own.

Steadfastly wait, and patiently pray,
Thus did our fathers who wished for the day;
Cheerful they toiled and calmly did die,
Waiting for Jesus to come from the sky.

Refrain

Some day the sky will part like a scroll,
Over the earth will the judgment trump roll;
But to the saints ’twill happiness bring,
Since they have waited so long for their king.
