483. Have You a Welcome?

1 O blessed Jesus, for Thee we are waiting,
Waiting in joy for that glorious morning dawn;
Thou hast a remnant that love Thy appearing;
Welcome Thy coming, dear Lord, for Thine own.

Refrain:
Have you a welcome down in your bosom,
For Christ to come this very day in final doom?
Yes, hallelujah! come, my Redeemer,
Even this moment, oh, come, Jesus, come.

2 Lo, Thou art coming, the heavens betoken,
Foreboding wonders astonish eye and ear;
Omens now thunder the signs Thou hast spoken,
Truly, O Savior, Thy coming is near. [Refrain]

3 Thrones have arisen and crumbled to ruin,
Since we await Thy returning from above;
Sinners emboldened say, “Where is His coming?”
Truth disbelieving, Thy wrath they must prove. [Refrain]

4 Many ungrateful, despise and reject Thee,
Others professing by works deny Thee more;
But all the ransomed, Thy bride meek and holy,
Joyfully welcome Thy voice at the door. [Refrain]
