When you return Lord, what will you find?

Hearts asleep or awake?

Will there be gatekeepers, ever watchful, ever awake?

Your coming in glory, Lord, only the Father holds

That secret of time and space ;

When the stars fall from the heavens,

When the sun fades to darkness, before generations;

When sister moon, loses her glow.

That day when, as you ascended,

You return, cloud-filled instep,

In triumph, most radiant of all heaven;

Before all nations, kingdoms, generations;

That day when, only the Father chooses

That you should so, return;

Gathering by your mighty angels

All those you have chosen ††

No one knows the hour;

Not in heaven not on earth, no one;

All you have bequeathed to us is to pray

To accept your grace of prayer,

Is to receive the hope of being chosen;

And the truth, that your Word, ever shall be
