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
