O hope of glory, our Christ will return

O hope of glory, our Christ will return!
  We will be raptured, with glory transformed;
Glorified with Him, Himself to enjoy,
  In His full likeness we then will be formed.
  Glorious hope! Christ will return!
Glorious hope! Christ will return!
We will be raptured, with glory transformed;
  O hope of glory, our Christ will return!
O hope of glory, our Christ will return!
  The old creation will vanish away,
No more we’ll groan, but have full liberty.
  Enjoy salvation in its utmost way.
O hope of glory, our Christ will return!
  Over the nations with Him we will reign,
Priests we will be in His presence to serve,
  Thus His salvation in fulness we’ll gain.
O hope of glory, our Christ will return!
  Waiting and watching, we faithfully serve,
Running the race, pressing on toward the goal
  That we the Kingdom’s reward might deserve.

Lord Jesus we love You!

First impressions last: When first reading and singing this song, there was a distinct feeling of lack; a shortage in desire for the Lord's return. Upon further review of the entire song, there was a renewed feeling of longing. We do love Him and yet other things might busy us away from the pure hope of being with Him, of being like Him and of His personal reward to each who 'sacrifice' today for Him. If we just continue to press on, day by day to "go out of the world to meet Him", Jesus our Lord, then more and more we will enter into the rich experience of this song. As to the world, self and sin, we groan and long to be released. As to Him, we just want to be "where He is". This is His promise to those who serve Him today: "If anyone serves Me,....Where I am, there also My servant will be." John 12:26
