"Thou Art Coming"
Thou art coming, O my Savior,
Thou art coming, O my King,
In Thy beauty all resplendent,
In Thy glory all transcendent;
Well may we rejoice and sing.
Coming! in the opening east
Herald brightness slowly swells;
Coming! O my glorious Priest,
Hear we not Thy golden bells?
Thou art coming, Thou art coming;
We shall meet Thee on Thy way,
We shall see Thee, we shall know Thee,
We shall bless Thee, we shall show Thee
All our hearts could ever say:
What an anthem that will be,
Ringing out our love to Thee,
Pouring out our rapture sweet
At Thine own all glorious feet.
Thou art coming; at Thy table
We are witnesses for this;
While remembering hearts Thou meetest
In communion clearest, sweetest,
Earnest of our coming bliss.
Showing not Thy death alone,
And Thy love exceeding great;
But Thy coming and Thy throne,
All for which we long and wait.
Thou art coming, we are waiting
With a hope that cannot fail,
Asking not the day or hour,
Resting on Thy Word of power,
Anchored safe within the veil.
Time appointed may be long,
But the vision must be sure;
Certainty shall make us strong,
Joyful patience can endure.
O the joy to see Thee reigning,
Thee, my own beloved Lord!
Every tongue Thy Name confessing,
Worship, honor, glory, blessing
Brought to Thee with glad accord.
Thee, my Master and my Friend,
Vindicated and enthroned;
Unto earth’s remotest end
Glorified, adored, and owned!
~ By Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879) ~
A Short Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ
be with you all. Amen.
Oh how we look for His appearing! As this world plunges into
more evil and apostasy, we have this blessed hope that our
Lord Jesus will return again! He is coming back to take His Bride
to be with Him forever! Every day, we look forward to that
blessed day when the Saints shall meet Him in the air; and
all creation groans for the day when He shall return to reign
upon the earth in righteousness. Our blessed Savior is coming back
as the conquering King-- and we shall return with Him someday!
The Lord Jesus shall restore all things when He reigns upon the Throne
of David! And as we look toward His appearing when He shall take
us home-- the Rapture of the Church-- may we then be found
watching, not sleeping, but watching and waiting for Him.
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing
of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
