The word is near
That in the gospel we can preach,
Which cast out fear:
Jesus is Lord and, by His breach
Through death, salvation is in reach.
The Lord is near
His own in testimonial days
With words of cheer
Sustaining them through desert ways
And waking their delighted praise.
The time is near
When Christ the Lord will take His throne;
He will appear
With myriad saints who are His own -
His through His work and worth alone.
