The King Of Glory - Poem by Barry Conner

Copyright ©1996 ©2002 ©2005 by Barry Conner

A light flash shatters the dark sky
The thunder shouts aloud
The east horizon is glowing red
Behind onward marching clouds

Can't you feel that something is happening
As all Creation groans?
The universe starts to tremble
As the gale wind screams and moans

'O Hide us! ' they cry to the cliffs and the rocks
'O Hide us from the wrath of the Lamb!
'The Day of His Fury has found us now! Oh...
'Who is able to stand? '

'Who is able to stand? '

A light flash shatters the dark sky
The thunder shouts aloud
The east horizon is glowing red
Behind onward watching clouds

The King of Glory is coming!
The heavens open up and peel away.
Upon a white stallion He is thundering down
His piercing eyes ablaze

'Behold! He is coming with the clouds! And every eye will see Him - even those who pierced Him
- and all the families of the earth will mourn over Him. This is certain.'

The King of Glory is coming!
The heavens open up and peel away.
Upon a white stallion He is thundering down
His piercing eyes ablaze

A light flash shatters the dark sky
The thunder shouts aloud
The east horizon is glowing red
Behind onward marching clouds

'And every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of
God the Father.'
