Advent Hymn (Watching Waiting Longing)
Verse 1
Heaven sent a child to save us light for all to see
Helpless baby mighty Savior holy mystery
Unto us a son is given born in Bethlehem
Lamb of God the Light of nations God in flesh became

Chorus 1
Watching waiting longing for the day
When His people would glorify
The Name above all names

Verse 2
For the joy that lay before Him chose our agony
Jesus bore the wrath of Calv’ry
Washing sinners clean
Our Messiah Christ our brother word of God in flesh
Loosed the chains that held us captive
Broke the bonds of death

Verse 3
So we wait with expectation for His Advent here
Bride of Christ His word proclaimed
For all the world to hear
He will come in clouds descending
At the trumpet sound
In the light of Christ our Savior
Ev’ry knee will bow

Chorus 2
Born in a manger dying on a tree
Rising Easter morning to set His people free
We’re watching waiting longing for the day
When all nations will glorify
The Name above all names
