Words for Verses 3, 4, and Chorus 2: Avis B. Christianson
Music: Alice Hawthorne


Soft as the voice of an angel,
Whispering, "Jesus is near,"
Hope with a gentle persuasion
Tells me I've nothing to fear.
Wait till the darkness is over,
Wait for the soon-coming Dawn,
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
After the shower is gone.

Chorus 1
Whispering hope, O how welcome thy voice.
Making my heart in its Sorrow rejoice.

If in the dusk of the twilight
Dim be the region afar,
Will not the deepening darkness
Brighten the glimmering star?
So when the night is upon me,
Why should my heart sink away?
Always I'll cling to His promise,
Watch till the breaking of day.

[Repeat Chorus 1]

Rejoice, rejoice,

Though on this Earth shadows deepen,
Brighter the hope glows with in,
As that glad day is approaching
When we shall gaze upon Him.
Caught up with Saints of all ages
Into His Presence divine,
There throughout years everlasting
In His Own likeness we'll shine!

Chorus 2
Glorious hope,
He is coming, is coming!
Jesus, our Savior is coming again!

Lift up your heads, all ye faithful,
Follow His Light from above.
He will not fail nor forsake thee,
Hope thou in Jesus' love.
Oh, what a glorious future,
Oh, what a day that will be!
Even so come, blessed Jesus,
Come, we are longing for Thee!

[Repeat Chorus 2 two times]

[Rejoice, rejoice!]
Jesus, our Savior is coming again!
