How many times can we fall?
Only to find God forgives it all?
A mess-up here, a wrong word there
A lack of compassion when we should care
Disobedience when we know we should obey
And we do not heed His voice, when He tells us the way
Why is He so gracious in all of our inconsistencies?
Because He loves us, in spite of our unreliability
What in the world is going on?
Where is God? Is He still on His throne?
The world around us is in turmoil, in great despair
Has He forsaken us, doesn’t He even care?
Wars, famines, disasters are all around
If you listen closely, in the distance you hear a sound
What could it be that our ears seem to behold?
Could it be Jesus coming back for His fold?
Does God care about this world anymore?
The signs we see are God knocking on our hearts door
The things that our eyes are gazing on
Reveal His mercy to us before this world is gone
The pages of the Word reveal the times in which we live
For this reason, His Son, God willingly did give
It is His mercy that has held Him back so very long
Through His blood, He will return for His ransomed throng
Look up, look up! For our redemption draweth nigh
How long? How long? Until He splits the eastern sky?
This may be the day, this may be the hour
His Son, Jesus, will be revealed with great power
We do not know the day or even the time
But we must repent of all the sins in our life
If it be today, tomorrow or even many years
If our heart is right, there is no need to fear
