Fly Away

It won’t be long

The day will come
The trumpet shall resound
And just like that
Well blink our eyes
And rise up from the ground
We’ll go to meet Him
In the air
All those who call Him Lord
Then with the angels
We’ll rejoice
With Him forevermore
Now is the time
Do not delay
To heed the harvest moon
Tell of His love
To all you meet
The Lord is coming soon
They must accept
His sacrifice
Upon the cross that day
Then when He comes
Upon the clouds
We all can fly away

What Glorious Things

If i could see the future what would my eyes perceive
I’d likely see much more than my mind could now conceive
If i could know what’s planned for all of us who do believe
What glorious things I’d witness on that day

I’d see a band of elders gathered round the throne of God
Cherubim and Seraphim would fill the sky aloft
Singing holy holy holy with their voices sounding loud
What glorious songs I’d sing with them that day

I’d see the Lamb of God who gave His life to save my soul
He’s the only one that’s worthy to open heavens scrolls
The worship choir praises Him and loud hosannas roll
What glorious things I’d hear them sing that day

I’d see the vials and the scrolls pronounce the wrath of God
I’d hear the trumpets sound aloud from angels in the clouds
I’d see the beast be lifted up and worshipped from the crowd
What glorious truth I’d know He’d do that day

I’d see Him riding a white horse His countenance so bright
He’s leading heaven’s army to a victory in the fight
I’d see the supper of the lamb prepared for birds of prey
What a glorious triumph I would see that day

I’d see the lake of fire and the beast be thrown within
I’d smell brimstone and ashes as he plunged to death from sin
I’d see the saints of God whose name the book contains
What glorious things He’d have for us that day

I’d see the new Jerusalem descending from above
I’d see the streets of gold and gates of pearl be opened up
I’d see the healing of the lands because of His great love
What glorious things await us on that day

Most of all I’d see my Savior Lamb of God is He
I’d see the one who came to earth and gave His life for me
I know these visions are the way the future’s meant to be
What glorious things He has in store that day

If you don’t know my Jesus and haven’t made Him Lord
The time is now my friend He should not be ignored
Cry out to Him for mercy he will here your cry and more
What glorious things your life will know that day



Clothed in the clouds He comes
Mighty and Merciful He comes
All power and authority in Him
All will bow their knee to Him

Riding a white horse He comes
To judge all the nations He comes
Our salvation is only in Him
Our victory was provided by Him

He is Jesus
Full of wonder
Crowned with splendor
He is Jesus
Eternal Savior
Light of the world

In radiant glory He comes
With sound of trumpet He comes
Will you be found in Him
Is all your trust in Him

The only way
The only truth
The only light
He is
The only way
The only truth
The only light
He is

He is Jesus
Full of wonder
Crowned with splendor
He is Jesus
Eternal Savior
Light of the world

In response to the daily prompt Splendor


The storm gathers
The thunder roars
Lightning fills the sky
The wind billows
The air is humid
Amazement fills my eyes

I can see the signs of a thunderstorm
As it travels from afar
I know enough to find shelter
To protect me from its harm

The wars are raging
The earth is groaning
The weather changes fast
The people fighting
The darkness gaining
His time has come at last

These are the signs of His coming
You can see them bright and clear
He’ll soon part the Eastern sky
And meet us in the air

One day the trump will sound
All the saved shall fly away
If you don’t know the Savior
Repent and be saved today

Sound Steady

I cannot guess the timing
For no one knows the day
The time of His arriving
Is not too far away

I pray that you are ready
To answer His great call
The trumpet will sound steady
And He will gather all

All who call Him Savior
All who call Him Lord
If you have His favor
If He your heart adores

I may be premature
By thinking you are saved
If you’re not really sure
Please get saved today!


In response top the daily prompt Premature

No Pretending

I look around at all the people running to and fro
I cannot help but wander where they all will go
For one day soon the clouds will part above
Jesus will return and gather those who He does love

I cannot look and see which ones will go with Him that day
I cannot determine who has followed in His ways
You see there’s only one thing that will qualify us then
Only one slight difference that no one can pretend

We must have Jesus as our Lord and Savior of our lives
We must have seen out wretchedness and asked Him to forgive
We must have turned away from things displeasing in His sight
We must now walk with Him each day and follow in His light

Will you be one to rise and meet Him on that fateful day
Will you avoid the wrath of God that’s coming anyway
If you have not decided yet and given Him your heart
Make today the day that you ask Him to be Lord

In response to the daily prompt Slight

The Day of Salvation

I dreamed I was rising to heaven
Jesus waited for me in the clouds
He had come back just as He promised
The trumpet had sounded aloud

I could see others rising beside me
All colors and ages were there
This day we had all been awaiting
When we would meet our dear Lord in the air

Then I looked for my friends and my neighbors
There were many making the flight
But several were not rising with me
I feared they had not seen the light

They had not asked the Lord to forgive them
Of the sins that He died for that day
They had not asked Him to be their Savior
They had not followed in His way

I know I had told them the good news
That Jesus had died for their sins
But they never decided for certain
Thinking there would be time in the end

For a moment a sadness was present
At knowing they were left behind
But His joy quickly came in and calmed me
As His presence filled up my mind

I hope if you’re reading this poem
That Jesus is Savior and Lord
If not take a moment this instant
To give Him your heart and your soul

For we don’t know the hour or the moment
When He comes there will be no more time
Today is the day of salvation
It is time to make up your mind

Make Me Your Light

I am so thankful for all you have done
You’ve given me breath
You’ve given me life
You gave me your Son
When I was lost and all alone
You called to me and saved my soul
Oh what a Savior
Oh what a friend

I am so grateful for your healing touch
You’ve strengthened my soul
You’ve lifted my head
You loved me so much
When life seemed out of control
You rescued me and made me whole
Oh what a Savior
Oh what a friend

Jesus the way
Jesus the truth
Jesus the life
Come and restore
Make my life whole
Make me your light

I am so hopeful you’re coming again
The trumpet will sound
The clouds will roll back
You’re saints all await
We will ascend with you on high
You will grant all eternal life
Oh what a Savior
Oh what a friend

While on this earth I will cling to you
Follow your mercy in all I do
Let others know of your great love
So they can join me up above

Jesus the way
Jesus the truth
Jesus the life
Come and restore
Make my life whole
Make me your light


Are You Ready?

I watch the sun as it rises today
Creeping its way up the sky
Bright rays touch the clouds
The birds sing aloud
Their anthem is raised up high

Someday soon God’s Son will return to earth
To bring all His dear children home
His radiant light
Will dazzle our sight
Well bow at the foot of His throne

Be sure today that you’re ready to go
When the trumpet shall sound that day
Trust in His name
Repent and be saved
Then lift up your voice in praise.
