When out of the East there arose such a
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

With a light like the sun,sending forth a bright ray,
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!
The light of His face made me cover my

And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

He spoke not a word as He searched for my name,
When He said "It's not here",my head hung in shame.

With those who were ready He rose without a sound,

In the words of this poem the meaning is
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call,
We'll find that the Bible was right after all!!
