Songs at church bringing back memories

Today at church, we sung several songs that bring back a lot of memories from my childhood.

This first one is titled "Side by Side." The lyrics plead with the listener to meet in heaven someday. We'll join hands and sing songs together, side by side with the Saviour.

Side by side we stand
Awaiting God's command
Worshiping the saving King
Living by His grace
And moving out in faith
Jesus will see us through

Meet me in Heaven
We'll join hands together
Meet me by the Saviours' side
I'll meet you in Heaven
We'll sing songs together
Brothers and Sisters I'll be there




This second song is titled "Jesus is Coming Soon." Sorry for the poor audio, but I just love the OLD versions of this song. Beautiful music!



Troublesome times are here, filling men’s hearts with fear,
Freedom we all hold dear, now is at stake.
Humbling your heart to God saves from the chastening rod.
Seek the way pilgrims trod, Christians awake!

Chorus
Jesus is coming soon, morning or night or noon,
Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound.
All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the sky,
Going where no one dies, Heavenward bound!

Troubles will soon be o’er, happy forever more,
When we meet on that shore, free from all care.
Rising up in the sky, telling this world goodbye,
Homeward we then will fly, glory to share.

Chorus
Jesus is coming soon, morning or night or noon,
Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound.
All of the dead shall rise, righteous meet in the sky,
Going where no one dies, Heavenward bound!


Jesus is coming soon and we are heavenward bound!

Side by Side always reminds me of 4th grade? when we all got in a circle to sing it and Stanley would try to get by me. So funny. I love those songs
