1 Fear not, believer, redemption draws nigh,
Jesus is coming again;
Coming to gather His people on high,
Jesus is coming again.

Jesus is coming, is coming again;
Jesus is coming again;
Make ready, make ready the way of the King,
For Jesus is coming again.

2 Coming in glory to set up His throne,
Jesus is coming again;
Coming with angels to gather His own,
Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]

3 Coming to banish dissension and strife,
Jesus is coming again;
Born of the Spirit, in Him is our life;
Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]

4 Coming to ‘stablish His kingdom of peace,
Jesus is coming again;
Sin shall be banished, and trials shall cease;
Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]
