Verse 1
We belong to the day
To the day that is to come
When the night falls away
And our Saviour will return
For the glory of the King is in our hearts
On that day, we will be seen for what we are

Verse 2
We belong to the day
Let us journey in the light
Put on faith, put on love
As our armour for the fight
And the promise of salvation in our eyes
On that day, the proud will fall, the faithful rise

Strong as a mighty rock
Our refuge in the coming wrath
The heart of the bride belongs
To Jesus, Jesus
The earth, in its turning stops
To marvel at the Son of God
And all of that day belongs
To Jesus, Jesus

Verse 3
We belong to the day
We were bought with Jesus’ blood
Soon he comes as the judge
In the power of his word
We must tell of his salvation while we wait
For the day when Jesus comes will be too late

Oh, if ten thousand years go by
We will wait
Let us tell of his great love
He will come
For his patience means salvation
