195. The Lord Himself Shall Come

by Montgomery, v. 3 J.N.D.
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.
Then as we upward fly,
The resurrection word
Shall be our shout of victory,
"Forever with the Lord."
There with unwearied gaze
Our eyes on Him we'll rest,
And satisfy with endless praise
A heart supremely blest.
"Knowing as we are known,"
How shall we love that word;
How oft repeat before the throne,
"Forever with the Lord."
