In the Treasury of Daily Prayer there is a section with prayers for every day of the week. Sunday's prayer wraps up with these words:
Let the Last Day come soon, so that we, released from all strife, may behold You with all saints and angels face-to-
face and sing our praises to You better than we are now able. Amen. Yes, come Lord Jesus! Amen.
Isn't that beautiful? "Better than we are now able." Now is the time of practice for the joys of eternity, for the songs of doxology that will never end. Our songs are feeble now, but they will wax strong and perfect on that joyous day when we see our Lord Jesus with all his saints and the angels face-to-face.
It reminds me of the Queen of the Chorales:
What joy to know, when life is past,
The Lord we love is first and last,
The end and the beginning!
He will one day, oh, glorious grace,
Transport us to that happy place
Beyond all tears and sinning!
Come, Lord Jesus!
Crown of gladness!
We are yearning
For the day of Your returning! LSB 395:6
