The Day of the Lord
John David Coupland
Oh the Day of the Lord will come on like a thief,
the Heavens will disappear.
The elements will be destroyed,
the Earth will be laid bare.
Yes the fire is coming and there’s no escape
from the righteous wrath of God.
Let us give ourselves to godly lives,
be holy, be holy, be holy.
Long ago by God’s word the whole Earth was made,
from water it all appeared,
And by these waters was destroyed,
by flood, by the Lord’s own tears.
Now a thousand years are like a day,
a day like a thousand years,
The Lord is patient wanting none
to perish but to draw near.
