When the Lord Comes Again

Representative Text

1 Christ the Lord will come again,
None shall wait for Him in vain;
I shall then His glory see,
Christ will come and call for me.

2 Then, when the Archangel’s voice
Calls the sleeping saints to rise,
Rising millions shall proclaim
Blessings on the Savior's name.

3 This is our redeeming God!
Ransomed hosts will shout aloud:
Praise, eternal praise, be giv’n
To the Lord of earth and heav’n!
