Saviour haste, our souls are waiting,

For the long expect-ed day,

When, new heavens and earth creating,

Thou shalt banish grief a-way;

All the sorrow, All the sorrow,

Caused by sin and Sa-tan's sway.

Haste, O hasten thine appearing,

Take thy mourning people home;

"Tis this hope our spirits cheering,

While we in the desert roam,

Makes thy people

Strangers here till thou dost come.

Lord how long shall the creation

Groan and travail sore in pain,

Waiting for its sure salvation

When thou shalt in glory reign,

And like Eden

This sad earth shall bloom again.

Reign, O reign, Almighty Saviour,

Heaven and earth is one unite;

Make it known, that in thy favor,

There alone is life and light;

When we see thee

We shall have unmixed delight.
