There is a growing anticipation among the saints
That the Lord’s coming is near.

In that glorious moment
The Lord shall appear
To claim the ones
He holds so dear.

The trumpet and shout we will hear;
To go to Him for eternity years.

He will make it clear
As He wipes away every tear

That Only in Him
A true heart yearns
As He reveals His glories.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
~ Romans 1:16


How could I ever be ashamed
Of the ONE
Who took my ignominy and shame?

For unto us the depraved; should forever
Be blamed.

From henceforth make it our aim
To speak boldly for that Name.
