When You Come For Me

Awakened to a new day, to a bright new morning star
Each day Iím filled with praises for the new song in my heart;
I am humbled in the power of Your love that set me free;
And I wait until that day when You come for me,
Lord, when You come for me.

Chorus:

Until then, I will wait for You.
Iíll be a voice for You; Lord, I will love for You.
Iíll be the flame that lights the darkness
So Your face the world will see.
Until that dayÖ.when You come for me.

You said, ďIn My Fatherís house are many rooms, and Iíll prepare your way.
And soon I will come back for you and here with me youíll stay.Ē
Oh, the promise of Your word inspires all I strive to be
I will serve You, I will follow, Ďtil You come for me,
Lord, when You come for me.

Chorus:

Until then, I will wait for You.
Iíll be a voice for You; Lord, I will love for You.
Iíll be the flame that lights the darkness
So Your face the world will see.
Until that dayÖ.when You come for me.

Bridge:

With a roar of mighty thunder, and the Angelsí trumpet sound
Oh, the earth will shake and tremble, the mountains will bow down
And in clouds my majestic Prince of Peace will stand;
Iíll fall on my knees and worship
When my eyes behold the Lamb!

Chorus:

Until then, I will wait for You.
Iíll be a voice for You, My lordÖI will sing for You.
Iíll be the flame that lights the darkness
So Your face the world will see.
Until that dayÖ.when You come for me.
Until that dayÖwhen You come for me.
When You come for meÖ.my King.
