A Solar Eclipse for the Ages

Look up! Your redemption draweth nigh!

Tens of millions will be watching
craning necks and looking up
to observe what has been promised in the sky.
It will be a holy moment
when the sun at last appears.
Wearing shades approved by NASA, we will spy.

But, that solar-studded Monday
(hyped by media galore)
will one day be dwarfed by something far more great.
When the Son of God returns to reign,
He will eclipse that day.
When He comes again the world will celebrate!

He is coming on the clouds, we’re told.
O what a glorious day!
“Look up for your redemption draweth nigh!”
But unlike Monday’s light show,
we won’t know the day or hour
when the Son makes His appearance in the sky.

Knowing that, we’d best be ready.
Yes, today might be the day
when the Son will rise with healing in His wings.
Trusting Jesus as our Savior,
we will glimpse His Majesty
as we join the chorus all the world will sing…

“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns!”
