Are We Listing?

Are we listening?
Are we awake?
Or are we lost in illusion
   for goodness sake?

Can’t you hear it?
Can’t you see?
Have you learned the lesson
   from the fig tree?

Signs are everywhere.
Momentum’s rising.
The world’s in turmoil
   but who is crying?

Where are those
   in Him they hope?
Are many watching?

“Where is this Jesus?
You say He’s coming?
Well please excuse me
   while I keep humming.”

“All is well here,
   now move along.
Nothing to see here.”
Keep singing that song.

Like a thief in the night
   coming all of sudden.
He’ll snatch those away
   because they’re His beloved.

And those that are left
   will mourn and weep.
Calamity will come
   then no one will sleep.

But while there’s still time
   take action, my friend.
And turn to Lord
   In Him to depend.

Politicians won’t save you
   neither silver nor gold.
Only the Cross of Jesus
   will save your soul.

Because of God’s love
   He wants no one to perish.
Not you, nor your loved ones.
All those that we cherish.

So He sent His Son
   to die in your place.
He took sin to the Cross
   and endured such disgrace.

But it didn’t end there.
He lives, that’s Good News.
Eternal life for you
   if you choose.

Death or Life?
It’s yours to choose.
Come to Him today.
   don’t refuse.

Time is short.
Please, don’t refuse.
