Waiting With Anticipation

Take us Lord, where You are
We want to be with You
Beyond the clouds, the moon & stars
Your voice comes shining through

From above the planets and galaxies
High atop the firmament
From the place You’ve prepared for us to go
After Your second decent

So, we wait for you Lord
Anticipating…Life beyond this earth
Where we will see You face to face
And our souls take on new birth

Our worn out bodies, flesh and bone
Replaced with a new name and image
In the likeness of You Lord, we try to imagine
But our minds cannot envisage

Lions sleeping with the lambs
Your peace…You promised to bring
For that day Lord, our hearts long
To praise You and to sing

Of Your goodness and Your mercy
Kindness, gentleness and love
We wait with anticipation
For The Heavens to open up

Raising the dead “In Christ” and “To Self”
We will meet you in the air
Revenge is Yours and by The Sword of Your Mouth
All will be made right and fair

Satan and his minions will be defeated
Trampled under Your foot
Forever banished in the lake of fire
The door to Hades… You lock and close shut

And the evil will burn in the lake of fire
Throughout all eternity
And we will forget their names and faces
Yes, You will erase them from our memory

So, we wait with anticipation Lord
For You to come again
An inheritance in Heaven
Yes, “ALL” believers will win

To You Lord, a day is like a thousand years
And a thousand years, is like a day
But it seems so long ago that You ascended, Lord
And so many have fallen away

Help believers to witness to the souls You have “called”
Help us reach the fallen who will listen and obey
And wait with anticipation Lord
For You on that Coming Day

When the Trumpet sounds and the sleeping rise
We will meet You again in the air
Yes, we are waiting with anticipation Lord
For the Bridegroom of our love affair

  1. Just beautiful. I have always wondered why so many people are afraid of the second coming of the Lord. Seems to me it should be a beautiful blessing.

    1. Amen! I remember my brother, Bobby, making a similar statement when we were just kids. He wondered why we didn’t weep when babies were born and celebrate at funerals! He was wise beyond his years… and still is!
