[Jesus said] I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. (Revelation 3:11 ESV)
Hymn ELH 536:1,4 O Son of God, We Wait for Thee
O Son of God, we wait for Thee,
We long for Thine appearing;
We know thou sittest on the throne,
And we Thy name are bearing.
Who trusts in Thee, May joyful be,
And see Thee, Lord, descending
To bring us bliss unending.
We wait for Thee; soon Thou wilt come,
The time is swiftly nearing;
In this we also do rejoice,
And long for thine appearing,
O bliss ’twill be When Thee we see,
Homeward thy people bringing,
With transport and with singing!
Jesus, my Savior, help me to hold fast to Your Word. Forgive me when I fail and fall into sin. Help me to trust in Your forgiveness and to stand firm in my faith. Amen.
