Ere long the veil will rend in twain

Representative Text

1. Ere long the veil will rend in twain,
The King descend with all His train,
The earth shall shake with awful fright,
And all creation feel His might.
The angel's trumpet long shall sound,
And wake the nations under ground;
Throughout the vast domain of space
'Twill echo back from place to place.

2. Lift up your heads, ye Saints in peace,
The Savior comes for your release,
The day of the redeemed has come,
When Saints shall all be welcomed home.
Behold the Church! it soars on high
To meet the Saints amid the sky,
To hail the King in clouds of fire,
And tune and strike the immortal lyre

3. Hosanna! now the trump shall sound,
Proclaim the joys of heav'n around,
When all the Saints together join
In songs of love, and all devine.
With Enoch here we all shall meet,
And worship at Messiah's feet,
Unite our hands and hearts in love,
And reign on thrones with Christ above.

4. Celestial crowns we shall receive,
And glories great our God will give;
While loud hosannas we'll proclaim,
And sound aloud the Savior's name
Our hearts and tongues shall join in one,
To praise the Father and the Son,
While all the heav'ns shall shout again,
And all creation say, Amen.
