Bible Reference… Daniel 7:13; Matthew 24:30; Revelation 1:7
Early one morning, I walked out the doorway; stopped to look up to the sky.
I was thinkin’ that this may be the exact day when Jesus will sound off the cry.
There was nothin’ but blue sky, but one little white cloud, slowly slippin’ along.
I got so excited that I shouted out loud, “This may be the cloud He’s comin’ back on!”
This may be the cloud He’s comin’ back on; for we all know that it’s not long.
The signs for the learning point to His returning, and I’ve got a longing for Home.
I keep my eye on the sky, and I do what He says do; soon I will hear Jesus’ cry.
Gabriel’s trumpet will sound and I’ll lift off the ground
to the cloud that He’s comin’ back on.
Well, when you’re feelin’ just a little blue, now don’t let your troubles get you down.
Just leave your sorrows behind, step outside; take the time to look all around.
Well, keep your eye on the sky and get ready to fly,
when you see the cloud slippin’ along.
You may get so excited, that you’ll shout it out loud,
“This may be the cloud He’s comin’ back on!” (CHORUS)
