Christ is coming as a thief
|Christ is coming as a thief to steal those who are faithful,
Those who are most valuable and in the night, so watchful.
I seek, Lord, to be precious; make me a crazy lover!
Increase Your life within me that I would be Your treasure.
Christ will come as a bridegroom—His person most attractive—
Taking virgins wise with Him—those in pursuit so active.
I buy oil for my vessel; may Thy life spread to my soul.
When we’d meet I’d be burning and savor Your feast so full.
|Christ’s coming is His presence
Spreading in us.
He’s promised to come quickly;
Lord, grow in us!
|Christ will be the morning star to those eagerly waiting,
Watching for Him everyday in darkness for His rising.
It’s dark and most are sleeping; I rise for Your appearing.
Reward me every morning; I want Your gentle shining.
Christ is coming as a judge, all His people to meet.
All our work He’ll test through fire before His judgement seat.
So burn in me today, Lord! I open to Your searching.
Burn the wood and fill with gold; I’m desperate for Your purging!
|Christ is coming as a King to spread His kingdom on earth.
He will reign with all His saints who know His kingdom’s worth.
Reign in all my life, dear King; I give You full permission.
Under Your authority, I’m given Your dominion.
Christ will come still as a Man—the Son of Man forever.
First He was God’s only Son, now He has many brothers.
The Father’s Firstborn Son now has a pure duplication;
We truly match each other—we are divine and human.
