914. He's Coming

1. How sweet are the tidings that greet the pilgrim's ear,
As he wanders in exile from home!
Soon, soon will the Saviour in glory appear,
And soon will the kingdom come.

Chorus:
He's coming, coming, coming soon, I know,
Coming back to this earth again;
And the weary pilgrims will to glory go,
When the Saviour comes to reign.

2. The mossy old graves where the pilgrims sleep
Shall be open'd as wide as before,
And the millions that sleep in the mighty deep
Shall live on this earth once more. [Chorus]

3. There we'll meet ne'er to part in our happy Eden home,
Sweet songs of redemption we'll sing;
From the North, from the South, all the ransom'd shall come,
And worship our heavenly King. [Chorus]

4. Hallelujah, Amen! Hallelujah again!
Soon, if faithful, we all shall be there;
O, be watchful, be hopeful, be joyful till then,
And a crown of bright glory we'll wear. [Chorus]
