One Day Closer

In gathering dusk I hear a sigh
Another day is passing by
No more to hear its song or dance
No offering of a second chance
To return perhaps once more
To race along its fleeting shore
Its song is written, its shadow cast
Forever and ever this day is past

One day closer to eternity
One day closer….oh where will we be
When God sounds the final trumpet call
And on our awe-struck faces we fall
Every knee shall bow, He has proclaimed
As every tongue utters His sacred name
Will we bow in joy or fear
As we see Him re-appear?

One day closer to time nevermore
One day closer than ever before
One day closer to no beginning or end
One day closer, are we ready, my friend?
What is this life but the beginning of death?
A flicker, a vapor, a fleeting breath
A moment of mercy where God’s love is free
As He holds the keys to eternity

Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place
And gave Him the name that is above every name,
That at the name of JESUS every knee should bow
In Heaven, on earth and under the earth
And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
To the glory of God the Father. Phil. 2:9-11

Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me,
And I will give to everyone according to what he has done. Rev.22:12

They will see the Son of Man coming on
the clouds of the sky
with power and great glory. Matt.24:30
