1 Dear friends, listen, let me tell you,
If I but could portray
What a vision thrills my being
As I walk on this way:
There before me in such glory,
In such brightness, I see,
Stands a Bridegroom, blessed Bridegroom,
And He’s waiting for me!

He is waiting, He is waiting
At the end of the way,
“I am coming, I am coming,”
With what joy I do say;
He is waiting, He is waiting
In such splendor, I see—
Hallelujah! for my Bridegroom
Is there waiting for me!

2 He is fairer than the lilies,
Brighter far than the sun,
He is chief among ten thousand,
Yes, my heart He has won!
I am wholly His forever,
Yes, through eternity—
For the Bridegroom, yes, my Bridegroom,
Is now waiting for me! [Refrain]

3 Care I any if my journey
May now seem rough and long?
Nay—His glory lights my pathway,
And His smile brings a song;
Yes, these clouds and thorns and boulders,
Oh, how small they will be
When I reach my one Beloved,
Who is waiting for me! [Refrain]

4 I am coming, I am coming,
I will never say nay,
For His beauty fills my being,
Lost in love, I’ll obey;
What a vision, what a rapture,
What a glory I see—
There before me waits my Bridegroom,
Yes, He’s waiting for me! [Refrain]
