I'm waiting for thee, Lord - "Over There"
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

"Over There."

1. I'm waiting for thee, Lord,
  thy beauty to see, Lord,
    I'm waiting for thee –
        for thy coming again.
Thou'rt gone over there, Lord,
  a place to prepare, Lord,
    thy home I shall share
        at thy coming again.

2. 'Mid danger and fear, Lord,
  I'm oft weary here, Lord,
    the day must be near
        of thy coming again.
'Tis all sunshine there, Lord,
  no sighing or care, Lord,
    but glory so fair
        at thy coming again.

3. Whilst thou art away, Lord,
  I stumble and stray, Lord,
    oh! hasten the day
        of thy coming again.
This is not my rest, Lord;
  a pilgrim confessed, Lord,
    I wait to be blessed
        at thy coming again.

4. Our loved ones before, Lord,
  their troubles are o'er, Lord,
    I'll meet them once more
        at thy coming again.
The blood was the sign, Lord,
  that marked them as thine, Lord,
    and brightly they'll shine
        at thy coming again.

5. E'en now let my ways, Lord,
  be bright with thy praise, Lord,
    for brief are the days
        ere thy coming again.
I'm waiting for thee, Lord,
  thy beauty to see, Lord,
    no triumph for me
        like thy coming again.

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 165-166.
