Civilla D. Martin (1866–1948)


A won­der­ful time is just ahead,
The Lord whom we love and own
Will op­en the gates of glo­ry land
Revealing His glo­ry throne.


A won­der­ful time for you,
A won­der­ful time for me,
If we are pre­pared
To meet Je­sus the King,
A won­der­ful time ’twill be.

A won­der­ful time is just ahead,
Our con­flicts and trials passed;
Our wil­der­ness jour­ney at an end,
Safe home ev­ery one at last.


A won­der­ful time is just ahead,
The groans of cre­ation cease;
And all that is held in bond­age now
The Lord will that day re­lease.
