Glides swiftly away,
And the fugitive moment refuses to stay.
The arrow is flown, the moments are gone,
The millennial year
Presses on to our view, and eternity’s here.

The radiant Star has steadfastly heralded the advance of the brighter Orb, and we trust that I may continue to shed forth its lustre till the Sun of Righteousness shall rise and illumine earth with the glorious refulgence of Millennial Day.
– Preface to Vol. 53 (1891) Millennial Star
The day dawn is breaking, the world is awaking,
The clouds of night’s darkness are fleeing away.
The worldwide commotion, from ocean to ocean,
Now heralds the time of the beautiful day.
Beautiful day of peace and rest,
Bright be thy dawn from east to west.
Hail to thine earliest welcome ray,
Beautiful, bright, millennial day.
In many a temple the Saints will assemble
And labor as saviors of dear ones away.
Then happy reunion and sweetest communion
We’ll have with our friends in the beautiful day.
Still let us be doing, our lessons reviewing,
Which God has revealed for our walk in his way;
And then, wondrous story, the Lord in his glory
Will come in his pow’r in the beautiful day.
Then pure and supernal, our friendship eternal,
With Jesus we’ll live, and his counsels obey
Until ev’ry nation will join in salvation
And worship the Lord of the beautiful day.
– Joseph L. Townsend
The mind has a thousand eyes.

Hunter

This is Keepa’s one thousandth post. I could wish that it appeared on another date so that you weren’t tempted to think this is a joke, but I couldn’t wish for a better group of commenters, guest posters, and the hundreds of readers my stats program tells me read regularly without commenting. Thank you for making this such a wonderful community and a rewarding experience for me.
I’ll put up a real post a little later in the day. – Ardis
