Expectation of His Exaltation

"Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem" (Psalm 122:2).  "So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul… there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off " (Proverbs 24:14).  "Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else… Unto Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear... Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness" (Isaiah 45:22-24).  "That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:31).   

Jerusalem, be sure of this: 
Our feet shall stand within thy gates,
Though mockers in our day dismiss
Our Savior's coming that awaits.   

This is the promise of the Lord.  
His expectation never fails,
And saving faith has its reward,
For every word of God prevails. 

We know that every knee shall bow
And every tongue shall then confess
That Christ is Lord, who shall endow
His people with His righteousness. 

How sweet, Lord, is the expectation
Of Your fulfillment of the story
Concluding with Your exaltation! 
To You alone be all the glory!
