“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep…”
(1 Cor. 15:51)

If we believe that Jesus died,
And from the grave arose,
So God will bring along with Him
Those loved ones in repose.

For this we say by holy Word
That we who still remain,
Shall not precede the sleeping ones
When Jesus comes again.

The Lord will come amid the clouds,
Descending with a shout;
The archangel will give a cry;
The trumpet will blare out.

And so the dead in Jesus Christ
Will be the first to rise;
Then we too shall be taken up
To meet Him in the skies.

And thus we shall be with the Lord
For all eternity;
So let us share this precious truth
With every saint we see.
