218. Soon Will the Master Come: Soon Pass Away

10s.

Soon will the Master come: soon pass away
 
Our times of conflict, grief and suffering here;
 
Our night of weeping end in cloudless day,
 
And sorrow's moment like a dream appear;
 
Eternity—with Jesus—in the skies—
 
How soon that Sun of righteousness may rise!
Hebrews 10:37; 1 Corinthians 7:29; 1 Peter 2:19; Ephesians 6:12; Romans 8:17-18; Psalm 30:5; 2 Samuel 23:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:17; Malachi 4:2
2
We shall behold Him, whom not seen we love,
 
We shall be with Him, whom we long to see;
 
We shall be like Him, fit for realms above,
 
With Him, and like Him, for eternity!
 
Is now to sit at Jesus' feet our choice?
 
How will fruition then our souls rejoice!
Revelation 22:4; 1 Peter 1:8; 1 Thessalonians 4:17; 1 John 3:2; Luke 20:38
“For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.” (Hebrews 10:37)
“But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none.” (1 Corinthians 7:29)
“For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.” (1 Peter 2:19)
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:17-18)
