1
Lord Jesus, I am waiting
To meet You in the air;
Apart from Your soon advent
There is no other prayer.
My hope is Your returning,
Your nearness I can feel;
I feel Your ’biding presence
In spirit now so real.
2
Now in my deepest being
Your speaking I can hear;
Your plan revealed in secret
My thankful heart does cheer.
You are a moment nearer!
I sense Your coming face;
The day of grace now shorter
Soon Satan to displace.
3
Sever all cares that bind me
That I may be so free;
I’ll be with You transcendent;
Begone captivity!
From things permissive loose me,
Lax snares that in me grow,
Lest when You come to greet me,
I cannot freely go.
4
Each hour watching, ready,
This is my heart’s desire;
So not to miss that rapture,
My spirit set afire,
Lest by my slumber taking,
Not ready for Your call,
I miss Your face, unworthy
To leave this earthly ball.
5
Unto this heart speak freshly
A warning serious:
Why trade the kingdom’s glory
For things not glorious?
Love Him with heart o’erflowing,
His coming fully mind;
Turn loose at every moment
The earthly things you find.
6
Though fierce might be the fighting,
Vile spirits all around,
Fear not such threat; be ready
To leave this foreign ground.
Though darkness is increasing,
Redemption’s day is near;
Lift up your head, for surely
Our Lord will soon appear.
7
Lord, may I love You only,
Lord, be my only thought,
Rejecting this world’s bribing,
The One in heaven sought.
All earth’s attachments loosen,
Dear Lord, delay no more;
I long to greet Your coming,
The One whom I adore.
