"THE CROWNING DAY"


Our Lord is now rejected,
And by the world disowned,
By the many still neglected,
And by the few enthroned,
But soon He’ll come in glory,
The hour is drawing nigh,
For the crowning day is coming by and by.

Oh, the crowning day is coming,
Is coming by and by,
When our Lord shall come “in power,”
And “glory” from on high.
Oh, the glorious sight will gladden,
Each waiting, watchful eye,
In the crowning day that’s coming by and by.

The heav’ns shall glow with splendor,
But brighter far than they
The saints shall shine in glory,
As Christ shall them array,
The beauty of the Savior,
Shall dazzle ev’ry eye,
For the crowning day is coming by and by.

Our pain shall then be over,
We’ll sit and sigh no more,
Behind us all of sorrow,
And naught but joy before,
A joy in our Redeemer,
As we to Him are nigh,
For the crowning day that’s coming by and by.

Let all that look for, hasten
The coming joyful day,
By earnest consecration,
To walk the narrow way,
By gath’ring in the lost ones,
For whom our Lord did die,
For the crowning day that’s coming by and by.

~By Daniel W. Whittle, year 1881~

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Oh blessed thought! Our Lord Jesus is coming! There is a crowning day
coming for our Savior! We, who have been redeemed by His precious
blood, rejoice to see the day! We are waiting in expectancy for His
appearing. This world we now reside in will be but a faint memory
for Christ shall make all things new. He shall reign in righteousness
and we shall be joint-heirs with Him. Maranatha! Our Lord, Come!

James 5:7-8 
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter
rain. Be ye also patient; establish your hearts: for the
coming of the Lord draweth nigh.


2Timothy 4:8 
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day:
and not to me only, but unto all them also
that love his appearing.

The Lord Jesus says in Revelation 3:11: 
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast,
that no man take thy crown.
