Representative Text

1 All who wait for His appearing shall be joyful by and by,
When Jesus comes in His glory;
Changed into His blessed likeness in the twinkling of an eye,
When Jesus comes in His glory.

Chorus:
In His glory, wondrous glory,
When Jesus comes in His glory;
We shall see Him and be like Him,
When Jesus comes in His glory.

2 In the house of many mansions we shall meet in that blest hour,
When Jesus comes in His glory;
His shall be the crown and kingdom and the everlasting pow’r,
When Jesus comes in His glory. [Chorus]

3 All the clouds of time shall vanish, all the shadows flee away,
When Jesus comes in His glory;
We shall see Him in His beauty, in that full and perfect day,
When Jesus comes in His glory. [Chorus]
