THEY WERE WAITING

1. They were waiting, waiting for the time, waiting for the promises to be fulfilled; just like Eden, peace instead of war,
no more fighting anymore.
Now the time has come, God is in the world, we have seen his day dawning in the sky. They were waiting, we've been waiting; come, Lord Jesus, won't you come?

2. They were hoping, hoping for a king, hoping for a king who would be wise and fair; equal treatment, justice for the poor,
no oppression anymore.
Now the king has come, God is in the world, we have seen the child born in Bethlehem. They were hoping, we've been hoping; come, Lord Jesus, won't you come?
Come, Lord Jesus, won't you come? (2 times) Come, Lord Jesus, won't you come, Lord Jesus? Come, Lord Jesus, won't you come?

3. They were watching, watching for the sign, watching for the sign of his arrival here: water in the desert, singing in the land, celebration in the land.
Now the sign has come, God is in the world, we have seen the boy, we have seen his star. They were watching, we've been watching; come, Lord Jesus, won't you come?
Come, Lord Jesus, .....
