Waiting at the Door

Verse 1:
I am waiting for the Master,
Who will bid me rise and come
To the glory of His presence,
To the gladness of His home.

Refrain:
They are watching at the portal,
They are waiting at the door;
Waiting only for my coming,
All the loved ones gone before.

Verse 2:
Many a weary path I’ve traveled,
In the darkest storm and strife,
Bearing many a heavy burden,–
Often struggling for my life.

Verse 3:
Many friends that traveled with me
Reached that portal long ago;
One by one they left me battling
With the dark and crafty foe.

Verse 4:
Yes, their pilgrimage was shorter,
And their triumphs sooner won;
Oh, how lovingly they’ll greet me
When the toils of life are done.

Mrs. K.M. Reasoner/T.C. O’Kane
