 He is Near ~ Horatius Bonar

I came across this song yesterday as I was flipping through our church hymnal and was struck with the relevancy of this song for today. We don't know what lies ahead but we know that He is near!

~~~

[b]He is Near[/b]

[i]Horatius Bonar[/i]

I know not when the Lord will come,
Or at what hour He may appear,
Whether at midnight or at morn,
Or at what season of the year.

Refrain

[i]I only know that He is near,
And that His voice I soon shall hear;
I only know that He is near,
And that His voice I soon shall hear;[/i]

I know not what of time remains,
To run its course, in this low sphere,
Or what awaits of calm or storm,
Of joy or grief, or hope or fear.

Refrain

I know not what is yet to run
Of spring or summer, green or sear,
Of death or life, of pain or peace,
Of shade or shine, of song or tear.

Refrain

The centuries have come and gone,
Dark centuries of absence drear;
I dare not chide the long delay,
Nor ask when I His voice shall hear.

Refrain

I do not think it can be long,
Till in His glory He appear;
And yet I dare not name the day,
Nor fix the solemn advent year.

Refrain
[i]I only know that He is near,
And that His voice I soon shall hear;
I only know that He is near,
And that His voice I soon shall hear;[/i]

 Re: He is Near ~ Horatius Bonar

I love the writings and hymns of Horatius Bonar.

You can sense the fear and reverance of God in them.

Excellent.

God bless.
