The coming of
our Lord is near!
Soon He shall appear,
Yonder in the Eastern sky!
Oh, there shall be a joyful sound,
As our loved ones shall come forth from the
To meet Jesus with a mighty triumphant cry!
Then, we who are alive shall be caught up in the
To meet Jesus and our loved ones there!
Together we will leave for Heaven’s shore!
With this world left far behind,
True happiness and peace we will find!
There we won’t have to worry any more!
Because we have faithfully walked this way
We shall gain entrance through the Eastern Gate!
Untold splendors await us in Heaven fair!
There we will never grow old,
As we watch eternity unfold,
In a mansion Jesus has gone to prepare!
