Christmas Jesus, Coming Jesus

Do you love the Christmas Jesus,
  The new-born babe in hay?
Do you love the angels’ song
  That turned the night to day?

That is right and good and true.
  Rejoice for all you’re worth.
Jesus is the Christ, the Lord,
  The Savior come to earth.

Do you love the coming Jesus,
  The judge with sword and fire?
Does repentance shape you daily
  So you are in his choir?

When he comes in strength and glory,
  Will your dead works all burn?
Or is your life all his great story--
  With joy at his return?

...“Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”
(Acts 1:11 ESV)

Too bad more people don't see the connection between his birth and his return.
