I am waiting for the hour
When the King in all His power,
With a mighty shout from Heaven
Shall descend:
Those who love Him shall rejoice
When they hear His blessèd voice,
And with Him shall reign thro’ ages
Without end.


I am waiting, I am waiting,
I am waiting for the coming
Of the King;
For that great and glorious day
When the clouds are rolled away,
I am waiting for the coming
Of the King.

Thro’ the spacious hills of time
Angels sing their songs sublime,
Till the rocks and hills and valleys
Catch the strain;
Worlds flung into space afar,
Sun and moon and glittering star,
Echo back in joyous rapture
The refrain.


In a moment changed complete,
Lifted to a land replete
With His perfect touch of love, no
Blemish there;
Every mystery made plain,
Every loss my richest gain,
Fullest joy and matchless splendor
