A day is coming, and you may be sure,
When things not eternal will cease to endure.
All will be new (pure, clean and blest),
Good separated from all of the rest.
Godís watching and waiting, only He knows the day.
Jesus is ready. But, God has the say.
I want to be listening, when I hear the sound.
Iíd like to be first, with my feet off the ground.
Oh, I hope you are watching, expecting the day!
For, He will come quickly. Thereíll be no delay!
The trumpet will sound. Heíll call out His own,
Take us to Glory and a beautiful home!
Already, the Savior well knows your name.
Already, Heís paid the full price for your gain!
Oh, come, brother, sister. So simple and clear
Is the way to be instantly safe and secure!
"I am the Way, the Truth and the Life."
