Christ comes quickly for His Bride

1
Christ comes quickly for His Bride,
Wedding feast He will provide,
Garments bright and pure supplied—
  Dress in time!
Taking Christ as life she’s dressed,
By much suffering stitched and pressed;
Righteous acts are thus possessed—
  Dress in time!
  Be in time! Be in time!
For the marriage feast of Jesus
  Be in time!
If your soul life you deny
And the Spirit you apply,
Then you’ll fully qualify—
    Be in time!
2
Virgins Christ comes quickly for,
Those with oil an extra store,
Not the fools who oil ignore—
  Buy in time!
For the oil a price we pay,
Deal with self without delay,
Fill your vessels every day—
  Buy in time!
3
For His servants Christ will come
And reward each faithful one;
Slothful ones will be undone—
  Serve in time!
Make your single talent count,
All self’s problems now surmount,
Serve with Christ, the living fount—
  Serve in time!
4
Christ comes quickly for His grain,
Ripened firstfruits to obtain;
Unripe harvest will remain—
  Ripen now!
From earth’s water grain must dry,
From the world your soul deny;
To mature the self must die—
  Ripen now!
5
Overcomers Christ will take,
Those who all for Him forsake,
Those who of first love partake—
  Win in time!
All the deadness overcome,
With the living Christ be one,
Toward the goal now swiftly run—
  Win in time!
6
Christ comes for His kingdom too;
Heav’nly reign we must pursue,
Let His rule our self subdue—
  Yield in time!
Rebel self must be dethroned,
Lessons must not be postponed,
Quickly yield to Christ enthroned—
  Yield in time!

Very powerful! Very sobering. reading this has lead to a good time of confession and prayer. Thank You Lord for songs like that which remind us of spiritual realities we so quickly close our eyes to. Amen.

Yes! All those among the dead who were "in time" will rise with the shout. Let us all pray for one another to "be in time!"

This song reminds me of the verses in 1 Thesalonian 4:13-18, parallel verses to 1 Corinthians 15. It says, But I do not want you to be ignorant brethren, concerning those who fallen asleep. For if we believe that Jesus die and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the words of our Lord, that we who are alive and remain shall in now way precede those who are sleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven, with a shout, with a voice of archangel, and with the trumpet of God. In the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound,And the dead in Christ shall will be raised incorruptible, then we shall all be changed, for this corruptible must change to incorruptible, and this mortality must change to immortality, then we will meet the Lord in the air, thus, we shall always be with the Lord. Amen, Amen, Amen.
