For Him we are looking and longing: For Jesus, and Jesus alone. " Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven." Acts 1:11b
Looking For Jesus
It is not for a sign we are watching,
For wonders above and below,
The pouring of vials of judgment,
The sounding of trumpets of woe;
It is not for a day we are looking,
Not even the time yet to be
When the earth shall be filled with God's glory
As the waters cover the sea;
Not for these, though we know they are coming:
For they are but adjuncts of Him,
Before who all glory is clouded,
Besides who all splendor grows dim.
We wait for the Lord, our Beloved,
Our Comforter, Master and Friend,
The substance of all that we hope for,
Beginning of faith, and its end;
We watch for our Savior and Bridegroom,
Who loves us and made us His own;
For Him we are looking and longing:
For Jesus, and Jesus along.
