I am waiting by the front gate
Others wait here, too
I've been called to be a bridesmaid
And my lamp is burning true
I am chosen to await him
But the hour is growing late
The moon is climbing high now
And it's hard to stay awake
But. . .

The bridegroom's coming
Got to keep the lamps all trimmed
The bridegroom's coming
Waiting patiently for Him
The wedding feast is waiting
And they're ready to begin
And I pray He'll find me worthy to come in

(I wanna see Him, I wanna see Him)

I awoke at midnight
Someone said he was near
We rushed to get our lamps lit
But some cried out in fear
We need some of your oil now
Our lamps are growing dim
I'm afraid I cannot help them
I've just enough for him

Repeat Chorus

(I wanna see Him, I wanna see Him)
(I wanna see my Lord)

We led the bridegroom to the wedding
He said hit's time to begin
He locked the doors and closed the world out
My friends came back, but they could not come in

Repeat Chorus (x2)

(I wanna see Him, I wanna see Him)

Scriptural Reference:

"The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete." John 3:29
