Jesus is Coming Soon!

This song has been on my mind for the last few weeks so I thought I’d share it.

 

Troublesome times are here filling men’s hearts with fear
Freedom we all hold dear now is at stake
Humbling your hearts to God saves from the chastening rod
Seek the way pilgrims trod Christians awake

Jesus is coming soon morning or night or noon
Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound
All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the skies
Going where no one dies, heavenward bound

Love of so many cold losing their home of gold
This in God’s word is told, evils abound
When these signs come to pass, nearing the end at last
It will come very fast, trumpets will sound

Jesus is coming soon morning or night or noon
Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound
All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the skies
Going where no one dies, heavenward bound

Troubles will soon be o’er, happy forevermore
When we meet on that shore, free from all care
Rising up in the sky, telling this world goodbye
Homeward we then will fly, glory to share!

Jesus is coming soon morning or night or noon
Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound
All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the skies
Going where no one dies, heavenward bound

Slow Fade…

The message in this song is so poignant in today’s society and it gives me chills every time I hear it.  Listen to the words….

Be careful little eyes what you see, it’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings.  Be careful little feet where you go, for it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow.

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away.  It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray.  Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid when you give yourself away.  People never crumble in a day.  It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade.

Be careful little ears what you hear.  When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near.  Be careful little lips what you say, for empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray.

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away.  It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray.  Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid when you give yourself away.  People never crumble in a day.  It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade.

The journey from your mind to your hands is shorter than you’re thinking.  Be careful if you think you stand.  You just might be sinking.

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away.  It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray.  Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid when you give yourself away.  People never crumble in a day.  It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade.

Oh be careful little eyes what you see.  Oh be careful little eyes what you see.  For the Father up above is looking down in love.  Oh be careful little eyes what you see.

Words and Music…

Well-spoken words can impart a certain depth of meaning to the hearer.  Likewise, music can evoke passion in the heart of the one receiving the melodic notes.  However, when music and words are combined, and the Holy Spirit breathes on them…well, there are just no words to express that feeling!

So, it is in this mindset that I share the following song.  This is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest praise songs I have ever heard or had the pleasure and honor of singing.  I hope you enjoy as I did!  The chills are still running down  my spine as the final notes linger in the air…  I give you Total Praise:

Blessings!
