S.M.


1
'TIS not far off - the hour
When Christ will claim His own;
We soon shall hear that voice of power;
The Lord Himself shall come!
2
The days are passing by,
The years flow on apace;
Lord Jesus, Thy return draws nigh,
We long to see Thy face.
3
Eternal in the heav'ns
Is our prepared abode -
Radiant and pure, in light divine,
The building of our God.
4
Then rest, divinely sweet,
Our pilgrim feet shall know;
And through that blest eternity
What tides of praise shall flow!
5
In patience, Lord, we wait
For Thee to take us home;
Fulfil to us Thy gracious word.
Amen, Lord Jesus, Come!
