'Waiting For His Return' Voices Of Gaither Worship Performance

Some of our favorite Gaither voices gather together for a worship-filled performance of ‘Waiting For His Return.’ These lively lyrics remind us that God is coming back one day and it will be a glorious day, indeed!


“I am waiting for the dear Lord (for Jesus)
Oh how I yearn (to meet Him), For His return (and greet Him)
Fire is burning deep in my soul (is burning)
Keeping me in the Heavenward way (the Heavenward way)”

For decades, Bill and Gloria Gaither have led the way in gospel music. Over the years, they’ve written iconic hymns like ‘Because He Lives’ and ‘He Touched Me.’ In fact, they’ve composed over 700 songs and that number continues to grow.

Today, we’re looking back on a classic 1994 performance of ‘Waiting For His Return.’ Filmed at Gaither Studios, we hear a chorus of voices use their gifts to praise our King.

“Night and day all the way, I have a song (of gladness)
Always near, He will cheer. Guide me along (from sadness)
As I wait, I’ll sing and be true (keep singing)
Telling love’s news each passing day”

It’s wonderful to worship along with this crowd that is on fire for the Lord. We are so blessed to serve such a loving and gracious Father and this gospel song is the perfect way to give thanks.

Revelation 21:4 “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
