Background

The story of The Speer Family is a love story that began over 75 years ago when a young man named Tom Speer met a young lady named Lena Brock at an all-day singing convention. It is a rare thing these days to see a real love story that spans so many years. It is rarer still to see a couple who lived with integrity, loved God supremely and raised a family to love each other and serve the Lord.

Dad and Mom Speer’s children – Brock, Ben, Mary, Tom and Rosa Nell – (all with grandchildren of their own) – are still singing today, carrying on The Speer Family Singers name and tradition. Through the years, not all of the long parade of singers in the group have carried the Speer name, but no matter who was in the group, “family” is what the audience always felt. The Speer Family has always communicated a warm spirit, a genuine sincerity and a simple, direct message that made us feel encouraged, empowered and enriched by the message and music we hear.

This performance and many more and can be found on the full length DVD ‘The Speer Family: A Love Story’ Here: href=”http://store.gaither.com/SHDVD4750.item” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>http://store.gaither.com/SHDVD4750.item

Lyrics:

Oh, the market place is empty
No more traffic in the streets
All the builders’ tools are silent
No more time to harvest wheat
Busy housewives cease their labors
In the courtrooms, no debate
Work on earth is all suspended
As the King comes through the gate

Oh, the King is coming
The King is coming
I just heard the trumpet sounding
And now His face I see
Oh, the King is coming
The King is coming
Praise God, He’s coming for me

All the railroad cars are empty as they rattle down the tracks
In the newsrooms, no one watches as machines type pointless facts
All the planes veer off their courses
No one sits at the controls
For the King of all the ages comes to claim eternal souls

Happy faces line the hallways
Those whose lives have been redeemed
Broken homes that He has mended
Those from prison He has freed
Little children and the aged
Hand in hand stand all aglow
Who were crippled, broken, ruined
Now they’re clad in garments white as snow

I can hear the chariots rumble
I can see the marching throng
The flurry of God’s trumpets
Spell the end of sin and wrong
Regal robes are now unfolding
Heaven’s grandstands all in place
Heaven’s choir is now assembled
Start to sing amazing grace

Oh, the King is coming
The King is coming
I just heard the trumpet sounding
And now His face I see
Oh, the King is coming
The King is coming
Praise God, He’s coming for me
Praise God, He’s coming for me
