Translated Hymn by Volbrecht Nagel (#287)

July 22, 2010 at 6:30 pm (Nagel Roots) ()

Verse 1

’til not far off the hour
When Christ will claim His own!
We soon shall hear that voice of power,
The Lord Himself shall come!

Verse 2

The days are passing by,
The years flow on apace,
Lord Jesus! They return draws nigh,
We long to see Thy face.

Verse 3

Eternal in the heavens,
Is our prepared abode–
Radiant and pure, in light divine,
The building of our God.

Verse 4

Rest, Lord in serving Thee,
As none have served below;
Oh, through that blest eternity
What tides of praise shall flow!

Verse 5

Come quickly blessed Lord!
Like exiles here we roam;
Fulfill to us Thy gracious word,
Lord Jesus, take us home.
