Watch for Me, For I am Coming (words only)
Deeper grows the darkness ‘round us Fiercer grows the strife;
Still our absent Lord obeying, Yield we but with life.
“Watch for Me, for I am coming,” This His promise still;
And our hearts respond with gladness, “Blessed Lord, we will!”
Satan’s mighty hosts assail us, Spreading snares around;
Striving by all arts to drive us From this holy ground.
Hearts grow faint, and eyes grow weary, Watching thro’ the night;
But we know a day of splendor Dawns with morning light.
Then the waiting time is ended, Then the battle won;
Then the Lord will crown the victors With His glad “Well done!”
