hi, I'm looking for the words of a beautiful hymn. the title is He is Coming it was written by Violet E King. the opening line reads, I have watched the tender halo
in the rosey tinted west.

I have watched the tender halo in the rosey tinted west at twilight when the evening shadows fall.
I have felt the sweet caresses of a presence all unseen and listening, I can hear my Master call.
O, I'm longing for His coming everyday, I 'm longing more; and I wonder why He tarries O so long, but I think each glorious morning and in every twilight gloom that He whispers: "Yes, I'm coming, coming soon."

This is such a beautiful song. My parents used to singing around the house. They are both in the glory with Him, but I know that He is coming soon and I long for Him.

It has been years since I heard this song. Seeing the sunset this evening in "the rosy tinted west", made me think of part of this song. My wife and I came up with a few phrases and thus caused a search for the song lyrics. Thank you for above lyrics!

Did this song have only one verse or were (was) there more?

I believe there is another verse. I'm not sure of the exact first phrase words-No more sadness (sorrow?), no more crying, no more pain(?) and no more dying. . . He will appear. That's all I can remember of that verse.

I heard a choir sing this when I was a teenager, and Here's what I remember:
I am longing for His coming; every day I'm longing more
And I wonder why He tarries, oh, so long
But I think each glorious morning and in every twilight gloom
I hear Him whisper, "Yes, I'm coming, coming soon!"

We've watched the eastern sky with tears in our eyes
We've worked and we've longed every day
We have left all behind with just one prayer in mind,
"King Jesus, come take us away!:
