1. Coming of Jesus,
Preciously near,
Coming of Jesus,
Wonderful cheer.
Coming of Jesus,
Blessed and dear,
Promised coming of Jesus.

2. Coming of Jesus,
Wonderful bliss,
Coming of Jesus,
What joy is this?
Coming of Jesus,
How could we miss
Glorious coming of Jesus?

3. Coming of Jesus,
No longer night,
Coming of Jesus,
With robes of white.
Coming of Jesus,
Coming in light,
Life in th' coming of Jesus.

Oh, joy sublime!
Coming of Jesus,
In the near time.
Coming of Jesus,
Glad Easter chime,
Second coming of Jesus.

Welcome the day,
Coming of Jesus,
He is the Way.
Coming of Jesus,
No more delay,
Hasten, coming of Jesus!
