TWO SING ALONG CHRISTIAN HYMNS ON THE RAPTURE 
BY THORO HARRIS (b.1874-d.1955)

Caught Up

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, 
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: 
and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive 
and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 
to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words." 
- 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 KJV

Though we may not know the moment when our blessèd Lord shall come,
To receive us to mansions over there.
Yet we know twill not be long before He takes His loved ones home,
And were caught up to meet Him in the air.

Well be caught up to meet Him in the air,
Well be caught up His blessedness to share.
Very soon He will come
To take His people home
Caught up to meet Him in the air!

There are times when we are called to wade through waters deep and wide,
And the sorrows of Christ Himself to share.
We remember He has promised to be ever at our side,
Till were caught up to meet Him in the air.

Well be caught up to meet Him in the air,
Well be caught up His blessedness to share.
Very soon He will come
To take His people home
Caught up to meet Him in the air!

Then eternal years in glory with our Saviour we will spend,
O we long for that morning bright and fair!
When the days of our sojourning and our pilgrimage shall end,
Well be caught up to meet Him in the air.

Well be caught up to meet Him in the air,
Well be caught up His blessedness to share.
Very soon He will come
To take His people home
Caught up to meet Him in the air!

He's Coming Soon

"For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do." 
- 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 KJV

In these, the closing days of time,
What joy the glorious hope affords,
That soon O wondrous truth sublime!
He shall reign, King of kings and Lord of Lords.

Hes coming soon, Hes coming soon!
With joy we welcome His returning.
It may be morn, it may be night or noon
We know Hes coming soon!

The signs around in earth and air,
Or painted on the starlit sky,
Gods faithful witnesses declare
That the coming of the Saviour draweth nigh!

Hes coming soon, Hes coming soon!
With joy we welcome His returning.
It may be morn, it may be night or noon
We know Hes coming soon!

The dead in Christ who neath us lie,
In countless numbers, all shall rise
When through the portals of the sky
He shall come to prepare our paradise.

Hes coming soon, Hes coming soon!
With joy we welcome His returning.
It may be morn, it may be night or noon
We know Hes coming soon!

And we, who living, yet remain,
Caught up, shall meet our faithful Lord;
This hope we cherish not in vain,
But we comfort one another by this word:

Hes coming soon, Hes coming soon!
With joy we welcome His returning!
It may be morn, it may be night or noon
We know Hes coming soon!
