Oh sister, brother, are you missing someone dear
Claim the promise from which the Father’s mercies flow
Rejoice in hope that wipes away every lingering tear
His risen Son has utterly defeated life’s cursed foe!
Redeemed loved ones who have gone before us will rise
Returning with our Lord on that glorious day of days
God’s righteous trumpet resounding in grace-filled skies
Listen for the archangel’s voice with a constant upward gaze
Christ Jesus who died on the Cross for our sins is coming again!
We who are saved by faith alone will be summoned airborne
For a spontaneous worship service in the clouds with Him
A forever reunion with our beloved Savor King leading us home!
“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 ESV
