From the day it was born all Creation was yearning For the day you'd be born and your day of returning And the prophets foretold of your coming in glory And your coming in clothed as a man and one lowly Christ in whom we all live Your life has been, to the dust, breath We're watching and waiting Oh Lord please come and come soon We seek you, and need you Our hope is only in you, Christ So you came as a babe, bringing light to the darkness With a manger for cradle, they made room as the star rose Yet by men you were scorned while our sin lay upon you As the temple veil torn, making room for us in you In your light all of our dark flees And your life laid down is our peace We're watching and waiting Oh Lord please come and come soon We seek you, we need you Our hope is only in you, Christ Any day you’ll return to retrieve all your chosen For that day we all yearn, knowing we will be known then Yet you wait while we fail, fall and tumble toward You Knowing full and full well who will then become like you Christ, judge of humans You want all to come in
You're watching and waiting You hold us knowing our end Your wisdom and patience We trust in, yet come and come soon, Christ
