The coming of the Lord draweth nigh

IF we really love the Saviour we shall long for his appearing. And in proportion to the strength of our love will be our desire for his speedy return. He will come, for he has promised to do so. He will soon come, so his word declares, and passing events seem to give an emphasis to that word. Until he come, the world will be in bondage, the church will be low in a low place, and his people will be groaning under sorrows and trials.:, His coming is the hope of his church, and it should find a place in our meditations, desires, and prayers. He comes to roll away the curse from creation. He comes to subdue all things unto himself. He comes to bring complete and everlasting deliverance to his saints. He comes to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe. He comes to reign on the mount Zion, and before his ancients gloriously. O to have a part in the first resurrection ! O to be among the invited guests at the marriage supper of the Lamb!

    We know the solemn hour draws nigh,
    When Jesus shall appear again,
Hasten, 0 Lord, and how the sky,

    And here begin thy glorious reign,
The number of thy saints complete,

    And tread thy foes beneath thy feet.
