Waiting is a gerund. A gerund is used in the same ways as a noun, i.e., as a subject or as an object. And in this case, waiting – a gerund – is used as a noun.
Carey Landry (born 1944) is an American composer of Catholic liturgical music. Among his better known compositions are “Abba, Father”, “Hail Mary, Gentle Woman”, “Only a Shadow”. Carey Landry is one of many musicians who compose contemporary Catholic liturgical music. This music has enjoyed widespread success throughout the English speaking world. He and his wife Carol Jean Kinghorn have released several albums and collections of music through their publisher OCP (Oregon Catholic Press). Carey and Carol Jean are coordinators of liturgical music at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Indianapolis, where Carey directs the choir.
About the song “Waiting in Silence”, Carey said: “For me, the season of Advent is a season of “waiting” – of waiting for the Lord to be born again in our hearts… We are like a new Mother and Father expecting their first child… we can’t wait for the child to be born. Yet we must still wait and that waiting is done in the most profound “silence” – the silence of prayer. Only the silence of prayer can “open our hearts” for the rebirth of Jesus.” This must be the reason why Carey chosed “Waiting in Silence” as the title for his song.
“Each verse of the song ends with the Greek word MARANATHA. In Greek that beautiful word is translated as COME, O LORD,” said Carey.
