Though we may not know the moment
When our blessèd Lord shall come
To receive us to mansions over there,
Yet we know ’twill not be long before
He takes His loved ones home,
And we’re caught up to meet Him in the air.

Refrain

We’ll be caught up to meet Him in the air,
We’ll be caught up His blessedness to share;
Very soon He will come
To take His people home
Caught up to meet Him in the air.

There are times when we are called to wade
Through waters deep and wide,
And the sorrows of Christ Himself to share;
We remember He has promised
To be ever at our side,
Till we’re caught up to meet Him in the air.

Refrain

Then eternal years in glory
With our Savior we will spend;
O we long for that morning bright and fair!
When the days of our sojourning
And our pilgrimage shall end,
We’ll be caught up to meet Him in the air.

Refrain
