Wait on the Lord, wait pa­tient­ly,
And thou shalt in Him be blest;
After the storm, a ho­ly calm,
And af­ter thy la­bor rest.


Wait on the Lord, for whom hast thou
On earth or in Hea­ven but He?
Over thy soul a watch He keeps,
Wherever thy path may be.

Wait on the Lord, wait cheer­ful­ly,
And He will thy youth re­new;
Wait on the Lord obe­di­ent­ly,
Whatever He bids thee do.


Wait on the Lord, wait lov­ing­ly,
Confide in His care thy all;
Those that abide in per­fect peace
No dan­ger can e’er be­fall.


Wait on the Lord, wait joy­ful­ly,
For then shall thy heart be strong;
Lo! by His hand He lead­eth thee,
And thou shalt be filled with song.
