Do you give thought to what’s ahead?
Do you view with consternation
The descent to desperation,
Or are you filled with hope instead?
Many are the false assumptions
Which captivate the heart of man,
Theories based on vain presumptions
Products of mankind’s corruptions,
Ignoring how it all began.
Eden’s fall brought man’s declining,
Nature too has felt death’s throes;
Sin, though morphed through redefining
Still presents a silver lining
To keep man’s spirit comatose.
There is only one solution
Our gracious Lord has put in place
To overcome our destitution
Cleanse our souls from sin’s pollution—
It’s through the gospel of His grace.
Jesus is God’s sure salvation
For all who come to Him in faith,
Rapture’s day of revelation
Is our blessed expectation
For which the saints of ages wait.
On wings like eagles saints translated;
All who wait for Him will rise:
Day His saints have contemplated
And have longingly awaited
Meeting Jesus in the skies.
Forever changed, like Him, perfected,
With new bodies—blissful state,
Exactly as His word projected
And His prophets long expected—
Our blessed hope—We watch and wait!
