The Lord Himself Shall Come (words only)
The Lord Himself shall come, And shout a quick’ning word;
Thousands shall answer from the tomb, “Forever with the Lord!”
Then, as we upward fly, That resurrection word
Shall be our shout of victory - “Forever with the Lord!”
“Knowing as we are known!” - How shall we love that word!
How oft repeat before the throne, “Forever with the Lord!”
There with unwearied gaze Our eyes on Him we’ll rest,
And satisfy with endless praise A heart supremely blessed.
That Resurrection word, That shout of victory -
Once more: “Forever with the Lord!” Amen, so let it be!
