Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

11622. Jesus Is Coming

1 Jesus is coming,
The promise has been giv’n,
Jesus is coming,
To take us all to Heav’n;
Jesus is coming,
The advent draweth nigh;
Oh, how glorious,
That we may never die.

Jesus is coming,
Coming back again;
Jesus is coming,
Sing the sweet refrain;
Jesus is coming,
Coming to earth again;
Jesus is coming,
Coming back to reign.

2 Jesus is coming,
To those who long for Heav’n;
Jesus is coming
To those whose all is giv’n.
Jesus is coming!
Come quickly, Lord, we cry;
Oh, how glorious,
Thy portents we espy. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is coming,
To those whose hearts are riv’n;
Jesus is coming,
To those with all forgiv’n.
Jesus is coming!
Oh, let our tears be dry;
Oh, how glorious,
When we ascend on high. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is coming,
To see Him we have striv’n.
Jesus is coming,
To meet Him grace is giv’n.
Jesus is coming!
No longer breathe a sigh,
Oh, how glorious,
He cometh from on high. [Refrain]
