THE SECOND ADVENT



(Image by j.smith at Burlington Ontario)


"His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light."-Mathew 17)



THE SECOND ADVENT


First as an infant

Now the Infinite

The hand that held the nails

The feet fashioned to the cross

Will stand

Upon the mountain top


Come quickly Lord Jesus

Come back soon

The world groans and waits

For your return

In this time of our lament

Hope waits for you in this second advent


Once he laid his glory down

In his glory He will come

Blessed are the ones he claims his own

Blessed are the ones who opened up their alabaster box

And poured their life down

At the foot of the cross


Looking back, looking back

At what Jesus has done

Looking forward

To the same Jesus who comes

To that day when all will see

God of Glory and Majesty


His hair will appear white as wool

In his mouth a two edged sword

Jesus who opened the door to grace

Shines like the sun on his face

Gentle Jesus who came to die

Brought to us the refining fire


Raptured by the vision of the coming splendor

Oh Lord Jesus I surrender

This same Jesus who came for us

Surrendered himself on the cross

Will come again and the world will see

The King in all his Majesty


First as an infant

Now the Infinite

The hand that held the nails

The feet fashioned to the cross

Will stand

Upon the mountain top.
