687. He Is Coming Again

1 Lift up your heads,
Pilgrims a-weary,
See day's approach
Now crimson the sky;
Night shadows flee,
And your Beloved,
Awaited with longing,
At last draweth nigh.

He is coming again,
He is coming again,
The very same Jesus,
Rejected of men;
He is coming again,
He is coming again,
With pow'r and great glory,
He is coming again!

2 Dark was the night,
Sin warred against us;
Heavy the load
Of sorrow we bore;
But now we see
Signs of His coming;
Our hearts glow within us,
Joy's cup runneth o'er! [Refrain]

3 O blessed hope!
O blissful promise!
Filling our hearts
With rapture divine;
O day of day!
Hail Thy appearing!
Thy transcendent glory
For ever shall shine. [Refrain]

4 Even so, come,
Precious Lord Jesus;
Creation waits
Redemption to see;
Caught up in clouds,
Soon we shall meet Thee;
O blessed assurance,
For ever with thee! [Refrain]
