Come, Lord Jesus, Come!


No one knows the day or hour,
Few will understand the signs.
Two are working; One is taken.
Darkness falls, yet Jesus shines.
Come, Lord Jesus. Come!

Skies will open to his splendour.
We will meet him in the air.
True and faithful we will call him.
To be with him is our prayer.
Come, Lord Jesus. Come!

With our prayer and through our witness,
Jesus, let no soul be lost.
Though the hour is late and ending
May we never fear the cost.
Come, Lord Jesus. Come!

In the flashing of a moment,
In the twinkling of an eye,
We will join you in the heavens,
Trumpets sounding in the sky.
Come, Lord Jesus. Come!
