Standing in simplicity,
Praying for my city:
Iím reminded of you--
Reminded of you

ĎCause everywhere I go,
And in everything I do--
Iím thinking of you,
Thinking of you

Being a Missionary here is hard:
Itís a marathon of the heart--
But--Dear Lord I have to admit,
I have a yearning this Christmas:

Christmas is coming soon,
Coming so soon--
I want to go home,
I really want to go home--

ĎCause everywhere I go,
And in everything I do--
Iím thinking of you,
Thinking of you

Christmas is coming soon,
Coming so soon--
I want to go home,
I really want to go home

ĎCause everywhere I go,
And in everything I do--
Iím thinking of you,
Thinking of you

Suddenly thereís a flash of light,
Its brightness breaks the night--

Look up at the Eastern sky,
Arise! Let the star arise!
Arise! Let the star arise!
Look up at the Eastern sky,
Arise! Let the star arise!

Now everywhere we go,
And everything we do--

Hearing the Preacher now is hard--
Heís preaching to us from his heart:
Jesus Christ will return again,
Make sure youíre ready to meet Him


Jesus Christ is coming soon,
Coming soon--
We want to go Home,
We really want to go Home

Because everywhere we go,
In everything we do--
Weíre thinking of You,
Thinking of You

Look up at the Eastern sky,
Arise! Let The King arise!
Arise! Let The King arise!

Weíll work together for The Kingdom,

Standing in simplicity,
Praying for our city:
Iím praying with you,

Scripture References:

I long to see you again, for I remember your tears as we parted. And I will be filled with joy when we are together again.
+ 2 Timothy 1:4 (New Living Translation)

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
+ Hebrews 10:24-25 (New Living Translation)

ďSo if someone tells you, ĎLook, the Messiah is out in the desert,í donít bother to go and look. Or, ĎLook, he is hiding here,í donít believe it! For as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west, so it will be when the Son of Man comes.
+ Matthew 24:26-27 (New Living Translation)

We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words.
+ 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 (New Living Translation)

And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, ďLook, Godís home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.Ē
+ Revelation 21:2-4 (New Living Translation)

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.
+ Romans 14:17-18 (New International Version)
