Hymn for Ascension Day

Remember those giant illustrated songbooks that we used to use in Vacation Bible School before we even had overhead projectors?

Somewhere in Outer Space
God has prepared a place
For those who trust Him and obey.

Jesus will come again
And tho' we don't know when
The count down's getting lower every day!

Ten and
Nine,
Eight and
Seven,
Six and
Five and
Four

Call upon the Savior while you may...

Three and
Two,

Coming through
The clouds in bright array

The count down's getting lower every day!

You have GOT to be kidding.

"...he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father; He will come again in glory to judge the living and dead..."

"In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am."

So, which details of a corny 60s-era kids' song are bothering you the most? ;)

Yup; remember 'em well...

Probably the "somewhere in outer space" would be most bothersome to someone who is, say thinking a lot about theology and science?
