That Long Embrace


Absence makes the heart grow fonder and in some ways my love has gone away
Gone to attend to my well being, gone to prepare for that great day
But He left behind his sweet promise and his presence right here in my heart
For nothing separates us til that day when we'll no longer be apart

No time, no space can take away his long embrace
Here I'll abide until he come back to take me to his side
With the arms of His Spirit around me I know there is nothing I can't face
In him to live and move to have my being held in his embrace

When he returns, he'll bring an entourage to see us wed
When he returns we'll sit down at a feast and be forever fed.
When he returns, my every hope and dream will be satisfied
When He takes us to his side as his perfect Holy bride.

His presence makes my heart grow fonder -as He holds me I'm set free
Don't have to wait for Over Yonder  he's living here in me!
I may not understand it, but I'll pursue the one who's mine
For since he has sought and found me I am lost in joy divine!

No time, no space can take away his long embrace
Here I'll abide until he come back to take me to his side
With the arms of His Spirit around me I know there is nothing I can't face
In him to live and move to have my being held in his embrace

When he returns, he'll bring an entourage to see us wed
When he returns we'll sit down at a feast and be forever fed.
When he returns, my every hope and dream will be satisfied
When He takes us to his side as his perfect Holy bride.
