There are great and precious promises
In the Word of God we can see.
Jesus promised that He would return.
That promise means so much to me.
We are promised a special crown
If Christ's appearing we do love.
With joy, my eyes turn to the skies.
I want to see Him come from above.
That will be a happy, joyous reunion
When friends and loved ones I'll see,
But most of all I want to see Jesus
Who shed his precious blood for me.
So I will keep on looking upward
And listening for that trumpet sound
And hoping for Christ's soon return
When my feet shall leave the ground.
