Longing

Citizens of heaven,
Pleading the same question,
“Jesus, when are You returning?”

Come display Your power,
In Your greatest hour,
Come Lord, we are longing.

The Spirit and Bride say, “Come, Lord,”
The Spirit and Bride say, “Come, Lord,”

It’s You, we’re longing for,
It’s You, we’re longing for,
It’s You, we’re longing for,
O Lord, we long for You.

Surely You are coming,
Glorious and stunning,
O Lord, please hear our cries.

Send the invitations,
For the great occasion,
Block the tears from heavenly eyes.

The Groom from the altar,
The Bride and the Father,
The marriage supper of the Lamb,
O Lord, come once again. 

Behind the lines

If you are in Christ, your citizenship is in heaven. Not only that, you are also the Bride of Christ. May we long for Christ, His return, and The Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Lord, “Send the invitations, for the great occasion.”

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,

“Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God
the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult
and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready;
it was granted her to clothe herself
with fine linen, bright and pure”—

for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”
(Revelation 19:6-9 ESV)
