In the final refrain of the song, the words change to “I’ll come again.” Funny thing is, many people who sing the song believe that He kept the first promise do not think He has kept the second – at least not yet. Why is this?
Before He was ever crucified, Jesus told His closest disciples that He would rise from the dead in three days (Mark 8:31). He also told them that He would come again in that generation (Mark 13:30). In both cases, He gave a time horizon for His promise. Why would He be faithful to it in one case but not the other?
