Like the snows of early spring, so the world is passing away. We look for a new heaven and earth.

2 Peter 3:10 (Listen)
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies1 will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.2
Hymn: TLH 604, st. 1,4: Great God, What Do I See and Hear?
1. Great God, what do I see and hear?
The end of things created;
The Judge of mankind doth appear
On clouds of glory seated.
The trumpet sounds; the graves restore
The dead which they contained before:
Prepare, my soul, to meet Him.
4. O Christ, who diedst and yet dost live,
To me impart Thy merit;
My pardon seal, my sins forgive,
And cleanse me by Thy Spirit.
Beneath Thy cross I view the day
When heav’n and earth shall pass away,
And thus prepare to meet Thee.
