Light for My Path Daily Devotion
“There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And on the earth nations will be in anguish, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the surging waves, people fainting from fear and expectation of the things coming on the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to happen, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.” (Luke 21:25-28 EHV)
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, forgive my sins and help me to look forward with joy and anticipation to your return. Amen.
