Falling, falling

Tears are falling down

We await the King

Tears are falling down

Falling, falling

Tears are falling down

We await the King

Come, Emmanuel

We are waiting

Come, Emmanuel

Dwell with us today

Come, Emmanuel

We are waiting

Come, Emmanuel

Save us from our sin

With Your bleeding

Save us from our sin

Through Your sacrifice

Save us from our sin

We are pleading

Save us from our sin

Through Your sacrifice

Shine Your holy light

In our darkness

Shine Your holy light

In our hearts today

Shine Your holy light

In our darkness

Shine Your holy light

In our hearts today

Lift our spirits up

In Your gladness

We will join to sing

Praises to our King

Lift our spirits up

In Your gladness

We will join to sing

Praises to our King

Reign upon Your throne

In Your mercy

Reign upon Your throne

Over all the earth

We look for Your return

In Your glory

We look for Your return

We await the King

“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord,

“When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch;

And He will reign as king and act wisely

And do justice and righteousness in the land. 

Jeremiah 23:5
