Thou art coming, O my Savior

Thou art coming, O my Savior,
  Thou art coming, O my King,
In Thy beauty all resplendent,
In Thy glory all transcendent;
  Well may we rejoice and sing;
  Coming! In the opening east,
  Herald brightness slowly swells:
  Coming! O my glorious Priest,
  Hear we not Thy golden bells?
Thou art coming, Thou art coming;
  We shall meet Thee on Thy way;
We shall see Thee, we shall know Thee,
We shall bless Thee, we shall show Thee
  All our hearts could never say:
  What an anthem that will be,
  Ringing out our love to Thee,
  Pouring out our rapture sweet
  At Thine own all-glorious feet.
Thou art coming, at Thy Table
  We are witnesses for this;
While rememb’ring hearts Thou meetest
In communion clearest, sweetest,
  Earnest of our coming bliss,
  Showing not Thy death alone,
  And Thy love exceeding great,
  But Thy coming and Thy throne,
  All for which we long and wait.
Oh, the joy to see Thee reigning,
  Thee, my own beloved Lord!
Every tongue Thy Name confessing,
Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
  Brought to Thee with one accord;
  Thee, my Master and my Friend,
  Vindicated and enthroned,
  Unto earth’s remotest end
  Glorified, adored, and owned!
Rosita Enriquez

I was enjoying a hymn with the word "rejoicing" and it was written by Frances Ridley Havergal; then I clicked on his name on the hymn to see what other songs he had written. Oh, my, he only lived 43 years... the songs are really wonderful and filled with experience, and suffering, and love to our Beloved, the One we are waiting for!!!! Press on, rejoice, love HIm, He is coming!!! Rejoice! Call on Him! Love Him... today!!!!

A most marvellous hymn, it climaxes wonderfully in the last verse. So may we know the joy of Him reigning and ruling within, so that he can return and have His name vindicated, enthroned, glorified, adored and owned over all the earth!

Looking "forward to the return of Jesus Christ, our great High Priest. He has completed the work of atonement and now intercedes for us. We now await His return to take us to Himself."
