Seeing Jesus Soon

I'm all alone, and yet there's Someone there
I've never seen His face or touched His hand
But there's a calm assurance in my heart
And I'm beginning now to understand

I've never seen the bottom of the ocean
And I've never been to the dark side of the moon
But that doesn't mean that they aren't real
And so I still believe
That I'll be seeing Jesus soon

Yes, there are times I'd like to see His form
Like Thomas touch my finger to the mark
Yet I am called to live by faith alone
With blinded eyes I see right through the dark

I've never seen the bottom of the ocean
And I've never been to the dark side of the moon
But that doesn't mean that they aren't real
And so I still believe
That I'll be seeing Jesus soon

STORY BEHIND THIS SONG...

(Read John 20: 19-29; 1Peter 1: 6-9)
In all the years I have walked with Christ I have never seen the Lord or had a vision of Jesus, yet I am fully convinced that He is the risen Savior. There have been times in my life--difficult times--when it would have been nice to see some sign or proof of God's existence, but it seems that God has a better blessing for me. Thomas was allowed not only to see the Lord but to touch His wounded hands and side. I find tremendous comfort in the words of Jesus when He said to Thomas, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed."

That's you and me, my friends. There's a blessing for those who believe, having not seen. And the best part is that in the end, we shall see Him in whom we have placed our faith. Our hope will not be disappointed!

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
