1 Are you yearning for the glory
Mid the toil and sorrows here?
Is the prospect more enchanting,
Does it strengthen, does it cheer?

If He came today,
If He came today,
Would He find you glad and ready?
If He came to day,
If He came today,
would He find you ready if He came to day?

2 Would you like this very moment,
To be brought into that scene,
And to stand within His presence,
With no vail to come between. [Refrain]

3 In that place so pure and holy,
Would you shrink before the light?
Do you know His blood most precious,
Hath availed to wash you white? [Refrain]

4 If you knew that He could save you
And His love could realize,
Would it fill your heart with rapture,
Would it prove a glad surprise? [Refrain]

5 If He came as He hath promised,
In the twinkling of an eye,
Would He find you waiting for Him,
List’ning for His welcome cry? [Refrain]
