Wondrous Expectation

With wondrous expectation, Lord,
   We wait Your Spirit now;
Oh, may our hearts with one accord
   In humble worship bow.

Grant us to set ourselves aside
   That we might newly be,
As one with all Your sanctified,
   To honor You set free.

Then we’ll behold Your radiant face
   As in us all You frame
A harmony of sweetest praise
   To Your most precious name.

Not ours alone, but Your delight
   So graciously to share
A future glimpse, a glorious sight,
   Of how we’ll praise You there!

Yes, You will soon to us impart
   To sing in spotless dress
Your highest name, Your kindest heart,
   Your perfect worthiness.
