Mount Olivet.

The Watchman's Testimony: "The morning cometh." Isa. 21.

The Angels' Testimony: "This same Jesus, which is taken up from you
into heaven, shall so come in like manner." Acts 1.

The Lord's Testimony: "I will come again, and receive you unto my
self; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14.

Soon will the morning come,
With beams of bright array;
Soon will be heard the watchman's cry,
"Behold the break of day!

"Awake, the morning's come!
Arise, O sleeper thou?
The Lord Himself from heaven descends,
The King of glory now.

"Behold the opening sky!
He comes, He comes again,
With cloudless morning, bright and fair,
Like shining after rain."

Midst all Thy hallowed scenes
Around mount Olivet
My spirit lingers, Lord, for Thee,
Thy morning smile to get.

For Him alone I gaze,
The Bridegroom from on high,
Descending with archangel's voice
His Bride to glorify.

Soon shall I hear His shout,
The trump of God, the Word;
And in the twinkling of an eye
Ascend to meet my Lord.

O Jesus, come, and bring
Thy saints that sleep in Thee,
To join the living in the air
In rapturous unity!

From mansions long prepared,
Through Salem's deathless love,
Return, return, O Lord, how long!
And take Thy Bride above. C. F. C.
