Christ shall Come

"The King of glory shall come in" (Psalm 24:9).  "The way of life is above to the wise" (Proverbs 15:24 ).  "I have loved thee with an everlasting love… There is hope in thine end, saith the LORD" (Jeremiah 31:3,17).  "For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17). 

The King of glory shall come in,
But not in meekness as a lamb
As when Christ suffered for our sin,
But as the glorious great "I AM"! 

The life we live while on this earth
Should focus on the things above
To show the blessings of new birth,
The hope of everlasting love. 

There is assurance in the end
That leaves no room for any doubt: 
The Lord Himself shall soon descend
And we'll be caught up with His shout! 

O Christ, we know with us You'll come
When tribulation years are through
To reign in the millennium,
Then evermore, we'll be with You!
