Soon

Sunday at church we sang an old song that was new to me.

Have you ever unexpectedly heard a song that exactly captured what was in your heart?

That was how I felt while we were singing it and I wanted to share it with you.

It's from an album, "The Revelation" © 1986 by the band Daniel Amos. The song was written by Terry Taylor and it's called 'Soon!'

I hope it blesses you...

And the river flows from the throne of God,
Passing by the tree of life
And in this place no candle burns
For the Lamb shall be our light

See the Holy city coming down from heaven
Here, there'll be no tears, no night
We shall reign with Him in raiment shining bright

And we say "Come Lord!" (Jesus quickly come)
And he says "My reward is with Me."
And we say "Come Lord!" (Jesus quickly come)
And He says "I am the first and last"
The Bride cries "Even so, oh when will my Love return?"
We say "Come Lord!"
And He says "Soon!"

We will see His face, He will speak our name
And He'll wipe our tears away
He shall be our God, we shall be his own
And His love will light our way

There will be no sorrow, there will be no mourning
Death is vanquished on that day
"So come quickly Lord," the Bride and Spirit say,

"Come Lord!" (Jesus quickly come)
And he says "My reward is with Me."
And we say "Come Lord!" (Jesus quickly come)
And He says "I am the first and last"
The Bride cries "Even so, oh when will my Love return?"
We say "Come Lord!"
And He says "Soon!"
