Surely I Come Quickly

Revelation 22:20
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
REV. 22: 20.
EXTRACT FROM A LETTER.
“I am persuaded we have to wait on The Lord about His coming, and the state of His people as being in that day (if they will welcome it) practically ready for it. I have no theory that I know of beyond this: that I hold it will be to His dishonor, who has loved us and given Himself for us (that we might live alone unto Him), if He were to come, and find none actually and practically waiting for Him. To our dishonor surely; but more than that, to His; and I use this oft in prayer to the Father."-G. V. W. to
J. G. D.
BRETHREN, hark! the midnight cry!
Lo! the Bridegroom draweth nigh!
Let us all with joy proclaim Him,
Lest our careless slumbers shame Him;
Shame, were ready none to meet Him,
None prepared with joy to greet Him!
Shame to us, were robes not white;
Shame, were lamps not burning bright;
Shame, if not our vigils keeping,
He should find the virgins sleeping!
Hark! my brethren, hear the cry,
“Lo, the Bridegroom draweth nigh!”
Let us each repeat the cry,
Louder let the tidings fly;
Every virgin swell the story
Of the Bridegroom's coming glory!
Lamps all burning, hearts all beating,
Longing for the joyous meeting. AMEN!
