His Return and His Reward

"The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek Him; but His power and His wrath is against all them that forsake Him" (Ezra 8:22).  "The LORD'S throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men" (Psalm 11:4).  "The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise" (Proverbs 12:15).  "Behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be… Amen.  Even so, come, Lord Jesus" (Revelation 22:12,20). 

To all who are seeking God's face,
His goodness shall be their reward,
But judgment with no hiding place
Awaits those forsaking the Lord. 

The Lord now beholds with His eyes
Our hearts and our innermost thought.    
All those who will seek Him are wise; 
All those who reject Him are not. 

The Lord shall return, as He said,
Though many are mocking Him now. 
His coming is not far ahead
When every knee surely shall bow.

Lord Jesus, until You return,
We seek the reward of Your smile. 
Amen!  Even so, Lord, we yearn
To see You in just a short while!
