Patiently I wait the day
When Jesus comes to carry His Bride away.
Then we will be free from sin;
To that Supper gladly we shall enter in.
In the meanwhile, on the earth,
Spirit gone, there’ll be great agony and dearth.
Seven years with Lamb once slain
While that serpent feigns to reign.
When the time is full, the King His foes will quell,
Cast them to return no more from pit of hell.
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
