1325. The coming king is at the door

1 The coming king is at the door,
Who once the cross for sinners bore,
But now the righteous ones alone,
He comes to gather home.

Chorus:
At the door, at the door,
At the door, yes, even at the door;
He is coming, he is coming,
He is even at the door.

2 The signs that show his coming near
Are fast fulfilling year by year,
And soon we'll hail the glorious dawn
Of heav'n's eternal morn. [Chorus]

3 Look not on earth for strife to cease,
Look not below for joy and peace,
Until the Saviour comes again
To banish death and sin. [Chorus]

4 Then in the glorious earth made new
We'll dwell the countless ages through;
This mortal shall immortal be,
And time, eternity. [Chorus]
