Until The Break Of Day

(stop when song ends)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus promised that he would come again,
and with a shout he’ll call out every saint.
But before that day arrives we must give our hearts and lives,
until the shadows of the night give way to light.

And when the morning dawns we’ll rise to meet the Son.
We’ll fly beyond the clouds where shadows never come.
Forevermore we’ll gaze on Jesus precious face.
But now we watch and pray as we wait for that day.
There’s work for us to do until the break of day.

Though the night watch may seem so very long,
and there are times it’s hard to carry on,
Jesus said that we must go that the lost may come to know,
that there is hope beyond the shadows here below.

And when the morning dawns we’ll rise to meet the Son.
We’ll fly beyond the clouds where shadows never come.
Forevermore we’ll gaze on Jesus precious face.
But now we watch and pray as we wait for that day.
There’s work for us to do until the break of day.


The break of day.

What a wonderful day it will be when time comes to an end, and we will be forevermore with our Lord! But until that day comes Jesus calls us to serve him with our whole heart, and to use the talents he has given us to reach the lost, to encourage the brethren, and to bring glory to him.

1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Luke 12:37a,38 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching:
And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Song of Solomon 2:17 Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.

Song of Solomon 4:6 Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.
