There is no sadder story
Than the one of this man
Who lost everything that he owned

Everything he treasured
Was ripped from his hands
And he found himself all on his own

And his friends all sat around him
And told him deny
But he shocked them with his reply

He said I'm waiting
I'm waiting for Him
And when the gates open up
I'll be walking in

And then I know that my waiting
Has not been in vain
For everything that He took from me
Everything that He took from me
He'll give it back again
Give it back again

So many years have passed now
But nothings really changed
We all live to survive

As people stave around us
And our loved ones die
So many asking my why

How can I hold onto
Something I can't see
Through all of life's misery

Well I say I'm waiting
I'm waiting for Him
And when the gates open up
I'll be walking in

And then I know that my waiting
Will not be in vain
For everything I give up for Him
Everything I give up for Him
He'll give it back again
Give it back again

There is no other story
That cuts right to the bone
Filled with injustice and pain

About the God of glory
Who watched His only Son
Die in our place in our shame

He says I'm waiting
I'm waiting for them
And when the gates open up
I'll watch them walking in

And they will know that their
Waiting has not been in vain
For everything they gave up for Me
Everything they gave up for Me
I'll give it back again
I'll give it back again
