Luke 21:25-28 (Listen)

The Coming of the Son of Man

25 “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26 people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 606 : O'er the Distant Mountains Breaking Hymnary.org link

1. O’er the distant mountains breaking 
Comes the redd’ning dawn of day, 
Rise, my soul, from sleep awaking; 
Rise and sing and watch and pray. 
‘Tis thy Savior, 
‘Tis thy Savior, 
On His bright returning way. 

2. O Thou Long-expected, weary 
Waits my anxious soul for Thee; 
Life is dark, and earth is dreary, 
Where Thy light I do not see. 
O my Savior, 
O my Savior, 
When wilt Thou return to me? 

3. Nearer is my soul’s salvation; 
Spent the night, the day at hand. 
Keep me in my lowly station, 
Watching for Thee till I stand, 
O my Savior, 
O my Savior, 
In Thy bright, Thy promised land. 

4. With my lamp well trimmed and burning, 
Swift to hear and slow to roam, 
Watching for Thy glad returning 
To restore me to my home. 
Come, my Savior, 
Come, my Savior, 
O my Savior, quickly come.
