Overcomers, Steadfast in Heart
|The age is turning! Saints, awake!
The Lord returns to judgment make!
Behind the scenes our God is reigning,
Heaven’s will on earth attaining.
Don’t with past gains be satisfied;
Recalculate in judgment’s light.
The world forsake, with its ties; leave all behind.
“Who will overcome?” “Lord, here am I!”
|Overcomers, steadfast in heart,
From the Lamb’s lead never depart.
Love with all our heart, all our strength, faithful to death;
Serve in resurrection fragrantly.
Christ, the church—life’s meaning we see;
We’ll spend all our being gladly,
Build God’s temple and city grand, God one with man;
New Jerus’lem radiant be!
|As we pursue, and trials face,
Your sov’reign mercy we can trace.
We’re open vessels, consecrated.
Living Spring, come permeate us.
Inscribe Your law, our mind renew;
Come sanctify us wholly, too.
We’ll watch, buy oil now, “today,” feast’s entrance gain;
Virgins, echo You—“O Lord, come soon!”
|Today You call for instruments
Who will respond, Your heart reprint,
Be vital, fervent, overcoming,
Time redeeming ev’ry instant.
As stewards, timely food dispense;
As servants, wisely to invest;
Perfected, functioning, we build corp’ rately,
Blend, coordinate, new man to be.
|These final days, Your call we heed,
As remnants, standing mightily.
The arrow’s fired; the fight’s decided;
The white horse in triumph rideth.
High gospel to all earth declare!
We’ll migrate, spread, His witness bear;
We’ll forward race with bold strides, stake our whole lives,
Kingdom’s entrance share, glory fore’er!
