As he draws near …

1 Cor.15:50-53; 1 Thess. 4:14-17; Lk 21:28; Rev.6:15-17; 11:15-18
We do not know the hour
when Jesus will return,
but he will come with power –
this universe will burn.
Lift up your heads
as he draws near:
rejoice, though stubborn sinners fear.

His children will be raised,
or meet him in the air –
then quickly they’ll be changed,
his glorious home to share.     Lift up your heads …

The final trumpet sounds, –
we’re waiting eagerly;
and praise in heaven resounds, –
Christ comes triumphantly.     Lift up your heads …

The kingdom of the world
has now become his own –
the kingdom of our Lord,
and of his worthy Son.
Our hope’s not vain, –
Christ comes again, –
and unopposed he’ll ever reign.

We give you thanks, O Lord,
for judgement good, complete,
and gracious, sure reward
to saints, both small and great.      Our hope’s not vain …

Tune: 66 66 88 Gopsal (Rejoice, the Lord is King)
