Twas the Night ..Before Jesus Came
Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house Not a creature was praying, not one in the
house.
Their Bibles were laid on the shelf without care in hopes that Jesus would not come there.
The children were dressing, to crawl into bed, _ not once ever kneeling or bowing a head. And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.
When out of the East there arose such a clatter, 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!
When what to my wondering eyes should appear but angels proclaiming that Jesus was here
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 head it was Jesus! Returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth, I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.
In the Book of Life which He held in His hand,
Was written the name of every saved man. He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said, "It's not here" my head hung in shame.
The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above. With (host who were ready He rose without a sound
While kneeling the rest when: left standing around.
I fell to knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate. I stood and I iced as He rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

Thanks for sharing this with us Yeshua! We used to have a copy here around the house somewhere.... it may have gotten thrown away though. It had been worn from the years of having it.

Thank You...

Thank You! HistoryMaker I recieved this copy from a local Pastor, I had never heard this one before but I had heard similar ones and I asked him who the author was but he said the author was unknown.
