1 Do you know why I’m longing for the coming of the Lord,
And watching His glory to see?
‘Tis because He’s my Bridegroom, my beloved and adored,
And I know that He’s coming for me.
Do you know why He’s robed me in garments of white,
And has bidden me all ready to be,
With oil in my vessel, and my lamp all trimmed and bright?
‘Tis because He is coming for me.
O He’s coming back again, He is coming back again,
I’m so glad that He is coming back again
He is coming for me, and His glory I shall see,
I’m so glad He is coming for me.
2 Do you know why no longer I can call this world my home,
And my heart from its fetters is set free?
‘Tis because I’m expecting that my Bridegroom soon will come,
And I know He is coming for me.
Do you know why I’m sending the tidings unto all,
And am warning them from Judgment to flee?
He has sent me His guests to the wedding feast to call,
O He’s coming, yes, coming for me. [Refrain]
3 Do you know Jesus promised when He left this world of sin
That He’d come again in glory in the air?
And His ransomed Bride will meet Him when the trumpet loud shall sound,
I’m so glad that His glory I’ll share.
When I think of the day when from sin He set me free,
How my heart doth turn to Him, my loved and true,
And I long for the time when my Savior I shall see;—
Are you sure that He’s coming for you? [Refrain]
