We…shall be caught up…to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thessalonians 4:17
Some glad sweet day, the Master’s voice will call me,
To lay aside this life of toil and care;
On joyful wing I’ll mount to realms of glory—
And meet my blessèd Savior in the air.
Some glad sweet day, the journey will be ended,
And we shall see Him face to face;
Around the throne with voices sweetly blending,
We’ll sing the riches of His grace.
Some glad sweet day, the feet that have grown weary,
In traveling thro’ this lonely vale of tears;
Will find repose beyond this land of shadows,
And perfect rest thro’ all the passing years.
Take courage, soul, nor ever fear nor falter,
Thy Savior will supply abundant grace;
In that bright home where all is joy and gladness,
There we shall meet the Savior face to face.
