All the earth was waiting

Added 18th October 2022


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

All the earth was waiting,
long anticipating,
for the true Messiah to come.
In the chill of darkness,
light became incarnate:
King of glory, cradled in straw. 

(He is) Joy to the world,
peace on the earth;
God has come to us,

Hope for all the doubtful,
mercy for the shameful,
healer for the wounded and worn. 
Jesus, our redeemer, 
counsellor and keeper; 
Father’s gift of love now outpoured.

Come to him, the Lord of lords,
bring your sorrow, bring your joy,
worship and adore the one the world was waiting for!
Jesus will return to reign,
wiping every tear away;
death will be defeated, 
earth and heaven will proclaim:
