13. Waiting for the Light

1 I am waiting, O my Father,
For the coming of the light,—
For the sunshine of thy presence,
That shall lift the clouds of night.

I am waiting for thy footstep,
As it comes toward my door;—
O, my Father, enter quickly,
Leave me never, never more.

2 I am waiting, blessed Saviour,
Let thy presence light my way,
Let thy loving hand e’er lead me,
Let me never from thee stray. [Refrain]

3 I am waiting, Lord, why tarry?
Enter quick the open door,
Let me feel that thou art with me,
And I ask for nothing more. [Refrain]

4 I am waiting, O my Father,
Yet I see the coming light,
Yet I feel thy tender presence,
Never more shall it be night. [Refrain]
