We are watching, we are waiting,
For the bright prophetic day;
When the shadows, weary shadows
From the world shall roll away.

Refrain

We are waiting for the morning,
When the beauteous day is dawning;
We are waiting for the morning,
For the golden spires of day.
Lo! He comes! see the King draw near;
Zion, shout! the Lord is here.

We are watching, we are waiting,
For the star that brings the day;
When the night of sin shall vanish,
And the shadows melt away.

Refrain

We are watching, we are waiting,
For the beauteous King of day;
For the chiefest of ten thousand,
For the Light, the Truth, the Way.

Refrain

We are watching, we are waiting,
For the time so long foretold,
When with saved ones of all ages,
We shall walk the streets of gold.

Refrain

We are watching, we are waiting,
For an earth made free from strife,
Then the power of Satan ended,
We shall have eternal life.

Refrain
