Will You Find Us Watching?
By: Susan Y Nikitenko

You have continually shown your love and grace;
You are a wonderful Father in heaven.
Man can not perceive your compassion, your love;
Nor your great forgiveness given unto men.
So small are we and so small our gratefulness.
So small our thoughts and small our memory.
Will we seek to know you more, to hold you dear;
To love your Word and joyfully worship thee?
Do the trees reach high into the sky in praise?
Is the whippoorwill aware of how much you care?
Does nature itself cry out to You above?
Clapping leaves , sounding rains, music in the air
If you stood before us in the clouds today;
If your trumpet proclaimed this moment-come home:
Would our hearts be ready? Would our arms reach high?
Would we be living for you when we hear that cry?
Will you find us watching? Will you find us praying?
Will you find us sinning? Will you find us straying?
When the trumpet will blast and you've come at last;
When the heavens proclaim your beautiful name;
When the bright light of grace descends from the clouds;
In your white raiment of marriage come calling.
Will we be ready to take, your wonderful hand ;
And ready to live out ,the plans you have planned?
Oh, Jesus- May your children be found watching;
And ready, trusting in your shed blood alone.
Trusting in the redemption you have rendered;
By grace, At the seat of your heavenly thrown.
1John 2:28 ¶ And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
