In the twinkling of an eye
When the skies are open wide
And the angels fill the heavens with a shout.
We will see the Lord above
Coming down in glory bright,
As He gathers all His loved ones to His side.
What will happen in that day
When the Lord returns this way?
Will you hear His welcome voice say, "Come My child?"
Or will you stay upon this earth,
With those who had no time
To accept the joy and peace that Jesus gives?
Oh my friend, won't you today,
Let the Savior have His way?
Open up your heart and let the Savior in.
He will fill you with a peaceAnd give joy and full release,
And your burdens will be rolled back as a tide.
Now when Jesus passes by,
In the twinkling of an eye,
You will hear Him say, "Come with Me, child of Mine.
For you've given Me your heart
And have surely done your part,
Now today, you'll reign with me eternally.
