You Are Coming Sooner than Thought
TEXT: Mark Ryman (2004) based on Luke 12:13-21.
TUNE: "
Lancashire" by Robert Lowry (1876).

Jesus, not my will but yours.
You are coming sooner than thought.
Help me give up all my stores.
You are coming sooner than thought.

Refrain:
Lift your eyes to the east
Lighting is soon released.
Just one thing saves the least;
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

They can have all that I own.
You are coming sooner than thought.
In my heart your light has shone.
You are coming sooner than thought.

I can’t warehouse all your wealth.
You are coming sooner than thought.
Your coming will be with stealth.
You are coming sooner than thought.

I will always work for you.
You are coming sooner than thought.
I wish all of this world knew.
You are coming sooner than thought.
