It might be morning just getting light
He could be coming in the middle of the night
It might be August, it could be June
Though years may pass, He could be coming very soon

I'm gonna watch and hope and pray every day
For Jesus to come again and take me home
But it's a waste of time if we don't tell everyone
We're not alone

It might be morning as you eat your eggs and toast
The trumpet rings the King of kings is come with all His host
You might be embarrassed, or you may be dismayed
You really didn't think that He was coming as He said

I'm gonna watch and hope and pray every day
For Jesus to come again and take me home
But it's a waste of time if we don't tell everyone
We are not alone

When He comes, you might be dyin' or maybe in the grave
If you accepted Jesus, as He promised, you are saved
It might be morning as we're caught up to His side
You're not ashamed because you've aimed for God to be your guide, woah-oh

I'm gonna watch and hope and pray every day
For Jesus to come again and take me home
But it's a waste of time if we don't tell everyone
We're not alone
