Christ’s Day is near

Romans 13:11-14
There is a day that soon will come;
soon see the hour of rising sun;
awake from slumber, rise to life,
let idleness be gone, and strife;
The day of Jesus Christ is near,
arise to serve in godly fear!

There is a robe of righteousness,
from God for those who Christ confess;
they, evil deeds must put aside,
and live like Christ, his humble bride,
protected as they war with sin:
they will by grace the battle win!

There is a work that we must do,
our vows, with zeal, let us renew,
and give no thought to fleshly lust,
but to the will of God, the just;
The day of Jesus Christ is near,
arise to serve in godly fear!
