This hymn was published in 1745 by Charles Wesley expressing the centuries old Christian desire for the return of Jesus. I often wonder how, say, Peter, would have responded if someone asked, in response to his assertion that those who give up on the Lord’s return have lost faith, “But what if it is more than another 2,000 years?”
That’s what this cartoon portrays.
Even after the flesh is gone
the ancient hymn is still being sung.
