When the world rolls around for the last time I’ll be bound
We’ll be standing at the door watching the skies
For we will sense in our souls that our Lord can’t withhold
His wondrous presence any longer from our eyes.
We’ll hold our babes in our arms; we’ve always sheltered them from harm
Just as God sheltered us in our young days
I know the crowds will gather and our hearts will swell with joy
To realize Christ has returned in our own days.
I think the birds will fall silent and the cattle cease their lowing
The wind will cease to blow out of respect
The ocean waves will lower as God whispers, “Time is over”
And the Spirit responds, “We are at rest”.
