God gave us rules that we ignored
like love your neighbor, self adore,
and keep on searching, looking toward
the sky for Love and Light restored
for, in these, He knew our reward
would be our presence with the Lord.
And, so, it happened, came the Lord
as man to earth, of whom ignored,
did not bestow His full reward
to all, but, still, Redeemed, Adored,
He gave new Life and life restored
with hope of future looking toward.
Like wolves, they came, were looking toward
the capture of our loving Lord,
but cowered when the ear restored
to hearing and, then, soon, ignored
those loved ones, frightened and adored,
who fled – Their lives were His reward.
Now, Judas sought his own reward
when thirty pieces, looking toward
the earth, was not as loved, adored
as first he thought, because the Lord
was, now, on trial and ignored,
“My Kingdom here on earth restore!”
The broken bond, the Truth restored
that God’s with man and man’s reward
was made God’s plan and not ignored
when we looked up, when we looked toward
the cross of shame that held our Lord
and made it clear that we’re adored.
Oh, won’t you join me and adore
the One who’s risen and restored
upon the Throne? He is the Lord!
The Lord from whom comes our reward
if we’ll be strong and looking toward
His coming that won’t be ignored.
I know the Lord who we adore
will not ignore, but will restore,
Himself, reward as we are looking – Looking toward.
Be on guard! Be alert!
You do not know when that time will come. Mark 13:33 (NIV)
