Brethren be of good cheer,
the day of his coming is drawing near.
He’s waiting and waiting patiently,
to draw us home for eternity.
We listen intently for the glorious shout,
when the Father sends Jesus to call us out.
So be ready at His appearing, whenever it may be,
at last we will be united as God’s family.
Rejoice in His glory which we shall behold,
as we walk those heavenly streets of gold.
And we know that this fleeting life is complete,
as we stroll with our Lord in His heavenly retreat.
