The Kingdom be Near

Posted Saturday, February 19, 2011, at 3:48 PM

The time of waiting over, The bridegroom seeks His Wife, that we enjoy being His family, for all our Reborn Life.
I love to poeticize my praises,
to our wonderful God on high,
but sometimes 'find' the phrases,
that fill the heart and eye:

The Kingdom be Near
Author Unknown

Watchman: Tell us of the night--
What the signs of promise are.
Traveler: O'er yon mountain's height--
See that glory-beaming star?

Watchman: Does its beauteous ray--
Ought of hope or joy foretell?
Traveler: Yes, it brings the day--
Promised day of Israel.

Watchman: Tell us of the night--
Higher yet that star ascends.
Traveler: Blessedness and light--
Peace and truth its course portends.

Watchman: Will its beams alone--
Gild the spot that gave them birth?
Traveler: Ages are its own--
See, its glory fills the earth.

Watchman: Tell us, does the morning;
Of fair Zion's glory dawn?
Have the signs that mark its coming
Yet upon thy pathway shown?

Traveler: Yes: arise; Look round thee,
Light is breaking in the skies!
Gird thy Bridal Robes around thee!
Morning dawns! Arise! Arise!
