You are not slow to keep Your promises
But till You return in mercy You will wait
You will wait
With You a day is like a thousand years
A thousand years to You just like a day

Two thousand years have passed since
Jesus You came to us
Millennium - a time to celebrate such love and
History's King we know that
You're coming back again
Millennium - a time to look to Your return

With You a day is like a thousand years
And a Millennium just like a day

Jesus Your coming back is closer now
Must be nearer than it's ever been before
Oh we're sure
This earth and all it is will be laid bare
The heavens disappearing with a roar
