When is He Coming?
"When is He coming, again?" you ask.
For, He said we would recognize
A host of events the Lord would send;
We wouldnít be too surprised.
When is He coming? Iíll tell you.
Oh, no, not the day nor the hour.
But, the Bible assures us Heíll do it.
Through the clouds, Heíll return with such power!
It will be when parents turn children away,
When they know nothing of holy teaching.
It will be when the people find games to play
And itís not for Bibles theyíre reaching ...
When they look for a high or sedation,
When mercy is dying for use,
When justice is Ďdoneí and not even one
Really cares for the fact of the truth.
It will be when manís knowledge astounds us,
When pictures float through the air,
When babies are thrown in the dumpster;
The aged left to sit and to stare.
It will be when the world is indifferent
And tolerance of evil abounds,
When men close their eyes while the little ones cry;
Ungodly acts all around.
It will be when the wars canít be halted
Though men cry for peace every day,
When bombs go off in the market
Or the grounds where the children play.
That will be when He says, "It is finished!"
And He signals for Christ to descend.
When the last thing on menís minds is Jesus,
Thatís when Heís coming again.
And I think for those who are watching,
Who are yearning for His return,
There is no way to express their gratitude
For the way of the cross they learned!
