You have not left us as orphans

You’ve given us a living hope

That testifies against the burdens of day to day life

This anchor it holds

Though time often seems to be dragging

And the Bridegroom may seem delayed

His promises they are not lagging the salvation of our souls

Will be the outcome of our faith!


The sons and daughters of faith

Groan for deliverance from this age

To be released from the labors of sin

And for the heavens to contract and give birth to resurrection!


This inheritance reserved in heaven cannot perish nor fade away

This grace unto will be given

We will be born again, revealed with Him upon that day!

Even though we do not yet see Him

And trials may distress our lives

These fires will result in glory and honor and praise on the Day of Jesus Christ!



We fix our hope completely

On the day you’re revealed in Your glory

And we rejoice with a joy inexpressible, full of glory!


Final Chorus:

Oh… it wont be long now!

Oh…. it’s closer than before!

Oh… we look for our Blessed Hope

Of the glorious appearing of our Great God, Our Savior!
