They That Wait Upon The Lord

Play

Here’s a hymn which is quite military sounding in nature and based on Isa40:31. It can be found in #753 of the Sacred Songs and Solos hymnal compiled by Ira Sankey.

It’s an old hymn but it is new to me. I hope you like these two stanzas which I have rendered.

Lyrics and Music: James McGranahan

Ho, reapers in
the whitened harvest!
Oft feeble, faint and few;
Come, wait upon
the blessed Master,
Our strength He will renew.

Refrain:
For “they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings,
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles,
They shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint;
They shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint;
They shall run and not be weary,
shall walk and not faint.”

Too oft aweary and discouraged,
We pour a sad complaint;
Believing in a living Saviour,
Why should we ever faint?

Rejoice! For He is with us alway,
Lo, even to the end!
Look up!
Take courage and go forward—
All needed grace He’ll send!
