He’s Coming

by: Shirley Satterfield

Let’s keep our eyes
On the radiating light,
And “not be weary in well-doing.”
Let’s continue in our goodness fight
And spurn our chronic boo-hooing.
His rewards are in His hand for the faithful man,
Hear Oh man the bird of peace is cooing.
He’s coming soon so do not swoon,
Oh faithful one,
You are His bride, His special Hon.
