Look For Next Sunday
I Corinthians 11:23-26
Do you look for next Sunday
On your daily road,
A step at a time
Your burdens to unload?
As new days dawn,
Upon this Earth’s plain,
Some days good,
Some to your shame.
But when the morning’s bright
On the first day of the week,
You are glad when they say unto you,
“The Lord’s house seek.”
Then pass through the vestibule,
And into the Sanctuary every time,
You see the stained glass cross
And table with bread and fruit of the vine.
You commune with Him,
And with each other, too,
Remembering His death
And what He did for you.
Then look for next Sunday,
As you consider once more –
His death, burial, and resurrection.
