127. Art Thou He that should come?

1 Art Thou He that should come, dear Lord?
Then why are we bound in prison?
Why is our night so sad and long?
Why is our Light not risen?

Refrain:
Wait, brother, for the day is breaking,
Dreary night shall roll away;
All the shadows round thee gathering
Soon shall melt in a glorious day. [Refrain]

2 Art Thou He that should come, dear Lord?
Then why are the sad hearts crying?
Why are the poor still trampled down?
Why are the needy dying? [Refrain]

3 Art Thou He that was promised, Lord?
O hear Thou the captives weeping;
See how the tide of sin and woe
Wide o’er the world is sweeping. [Refrain]
