Verse 1: Mt. 16:27, 24:27-31, 1 Th. 4:13-18, Tit. 2:13
One hope we’re clinging to, the day when we’ll see You
Descending on clouds in glory and fire
The archangel will give the shout, from the grave we will come out
Your Bride, yearning with desire
Chorus (2x): John 5:25-29
You will come down in power, You will come down in glory shouting
“Come up My people, come up from the grave!”
Verse 2: Mt. 24:27-31
Even as we take our stand, we’ll see the sign of the Son of Man
Blazing in the sky, telling us our redemption has arrived!
Then in shining splendor You will come down, You’ll send the holy angels out
To reap Your harvest, Your Beloved, the apple of Your eye!
Tag 1: Mt. 24:27-31, Ps. 50:1-6
From the north (echo – from the north), From the south (echo – from the south)
From the east (echo – from the east) From the west (echo – from the west)
(Unified) We will rise, we’ll be gathered to You in Zion
Tag 2 (2x): Lk. 18:6-8, Tit. 2:13, Gal. 5:5, Heb. 9:28, 1 Pet. 1:13
This is our hope, this is our life, this is what we wait for day and night
Come back Jesus! Come back Jesus!
