Lord, Thou wilt soon appear

1
Lord, Thou wilt soon appear,
  Thy day is almost here.
Oh, how we love Thy coming soon!
  We have no other
  Lord, life, or lover
Than Thou, Lord Jesus, our Bridegroom!
2
The hour is drawing nigh,
  Soon we shall hear Thy cry
And with Thee on the clouds descend.
  Oh what an hour sweet
  When Bride and Bridegroom meet
And love surpassing comprehend.
3
The moments fly apace,
  Soon we shall see Thy face!
Amen, Lord Jesus! Quickly come!
  We long Thyself to see
  And with Thee ever be,
Thou who our inmost heart hath won.
4
’Tis but a moment now;
  Thou, our Lord Bridegroom, Thou
Soon wilt return to claim Thy Bride.
  O Hallelujah!
  ’Tis this we long for,
And Thou too wilt be satisfied.

The hour of the Lord's return is drawing near! Lord, cause us to see that we are at the end times - even this would cause us to love and yearn for the return of our Bridegroom even more!

The Lord gave me the translation of this song in arabic, praise Him:

ربي تأتي عن قريب

يومك أصبح وشيك

آه! كم نحب مجيئك القريب

ليس لنا حبيب

رب ولا نصيب

سواك يا أحلى عريس

ها الساعة تقترب

صراخك سنسمع

وفي السحب نراك تنزل

يا لوقت فتان

يلتقي العروسان

وحب يفوق الأذهان

الأوقات في زوال

نرى وجهك لا محال

أمين يسوعي بسرعة تعال

نشتاق للقياك

لنكون دوماً معاك

يا من فزت بالأعماق

ها لحظة تفصلنا

فالعريس ربنا

آت لكي يطالب بالعروس

آه هللويا!

ها شهوة قلوبنا

لاقت رغبة الهنا

Oh, what an hour sweet, when Bride and Bridegroom meet! Our human existence is for this most excellent moment. Our whole being should be longing for such a sweet hour. Amen, Lord Jesus! Quickly Come!
