"Looking For And Hasting Unto The Coming"

2 Peter 3:12

    "Behold, I come quickly" (Rev. 3:11). So come, we beseech Thee;
    But what are we doing to hasten the day
    When earth shall be filled with the light of Thy glory, Hab. 2:14),
    To bring back the King from the land far away?

    Are we sowing the seed on the field and the wayside? (Eccl. 11:6).
    Or reaping the harvests long waiting and white? (John 4:25).
    Are we keeping our lamps filled and shining and burning, (Matt. 25:1-8; Matt. 5:16),
    And holding them high in the darkness of night?

    "Behold, I come quickly." So come, we entreat Thee (Rev. 22:20);
    But how are we helping to answer our prayer?
    Do we gather the stumbling-blocks out of the highway (Isa. 57:14),
    And make smooth the path for the feet that walk there?

    Are we doing Thy will? (Eph. 6:6). Are we giving Thy message
    To souls Thou hast loved and redeemed on the cross? (Mark 16:15).
    Do we show forth Thy grace (John 1:17), to the sad world around us?
    Thy patience in trial (Rom. 12:12; Isa. 53:7), Thy comfort in loss? (Phil. 3:7-8; Phil. 2:4-8).

    We watch for the signs, and we love Thine appearing, (2 Tim. 4:8; Titus 2:13),
    We long for the peace that Thy kingdom will bring.
    But what are we doing to hasten Thy coming? (2 Peter 3:10-12).
    And how are we helping to bring back the King? (Zech. 14:9).
