For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.–Romans 8:38-39

A Day is Coming

O For That Day

by Enfield

We are pilgrims on Earth and we long to be home
We were exiled in birth and wandered alone
Until Jesus the Lamb who was slain in our place
Redeemed us and claimed us His own

We have hope in the place where suffering ends
All our tears wiped away and worship ascends
Where our Savior now sits at the right hand of God
Our Defender, Redeemer and Friend

O for that day when our journey has ended
All of our hope found in Heaven’s reward
When we will have the Messiah forever
And we will dwell in the house of the Lord
Yes, we will dwell in the house of the Lord

We have dreamed of the streets that are covered with gold
Where we walk with the saints in the city foretold
King Jesus receives us as His perfect Bride
His love we’ll forever behold

We all know of the day when He’ll come to reclaim
The Earth from the Beast, cast to the flame
King Jesus, the just, the One faithful and true
Will gather His children to reign

O for that day when we’ll sing with the angels
Hallelujah, oh Ancient of Days
When we will have our Messiah forever
Offering glory and honor and praise
Offering glory and honor and praise
