Jesus Is Coming Soon ~ hymn

Jesus is coming soon

“Troublesome times are here filling men’s heart with fear; freedom we all hold dear now is at stake.”

These words resonate in many people’s hearts at this time. But they don’t have to. You can replace them. Why not replace them with the chorus of this same hymn?

“Jesus is coming soon! Morning or night or noon; many will meet their doom. Trumpets will sound. All of the dead shall rise; righteous meet in the skies, going where no one dies. Heavenward bound!”

What a joyous day is coming! We are all just sojourners here on this earth. Seeking to follow Jesus’ footsteps as best we can. We have had many conversations in our home of late about just being kind. No matter what else is happening around you – just be kind. And that is so hard to do when we are living with a heart filled with fear.

So, find examples of those who pushed that fear out and lived fearlessly. Want some examples? Check out our virtual Vacation Bible Schoolthat starts in just a few hours. (It will stay available for a while in case you can’t start it today.) We are talking about Angels in Blue Jeans. These are quiet folks in the Bible who make a difference just by stepping out and doing what needs to be done. But we see echos of them in current day, also, and we are talking about them a bit, too. See you there.

Blessings,
Lori, At Home.

 

Jesus Is Coming Soon

lyrics and music: R. E. Winsett (1942)

1 Troublesome times are here
Filling men’s hearts with fear.
Freedom we all hold dear now is at stake.
Humbling our hearts to God
Saves from the chastening rod.
Seek the way pilgrims trod.
Christians awake!

Refrain:
Jesus is coming soon!
Morning or night or noon;
Many will meet their doom.
Trumpets will sound.
All of the dead shall rise;
Righteous meet in the skies,
Going where no one dies.
Heavenward bound!

2 Love of so many cold,
Losing their home of gold,
This in God’s Word is told, evils abound.
When these signs come at last,
Nearing the end at last,
It will come very fast,
Trumpets will sound.
Refrain.

3 Troubles will soon be o’er.
Happy forevermore
When we meet on that shore
Free from all care.
Rising up in the sky;
Telling this world goodbye,
Homeward we then will fly.
Glory to share!
Refrain.
