HE IS COMING

HE IS COMING

 

 

Oh, friends, what a day it is going to be

 

when Christ returns for His own.

 

He is coming!

 

Horatius Bonar lived in the light of this blessed hope

 

and penned these immortal words:

 

 

I know not in what watch He comes

 

or at what hour He may appear,

 

whether at midnight or at morn,

 

or in what season of the year;

 

I only know that He is near.

 

 

The centuries have come and gone

 

dark centuries of absence drear;

 

I dare not chide the long delay,

 

nor ask when I His voice shall hear;

 

I only know that He is near.

 

 

I do not think it can be long

 

till in His glory He appear;

 

and yet I dare not name the day,

 

nor fix the solemn advent year;

 

I only know that He is near.
