195. The Lord Himself Shall Come

S.M.
by Montgomery, v. 3 J.N.D.
1
The Lord Himself shall come
 
And shout a quickening word:
 
Thousands shall answer from the tomb:
 
"Forever with the Lord."
 
That resurrection word,
 
That shout of victory—
 
Once more: "Forever with the Lord."
 
Amen, so let it be.
2
Then as we upward fly,
 
The resurrection word
 
Shall be our shout of victory,
 
"Forever with the Lord."
3
There with unwearied gaze
 
Our eyes on Him we'll rest,
 
And satisfy with endless praise
 
A heart supremely blest.
4
"Knowing as we are known,"
 
How shall we love that word;
 
How oft repeat before the throne,
 
"Forever with the Lord."
