1 Floods of mercy break around us,
Jesus comes, comes to save!
Fetters fall that long have bound us,
Jesus comes, comes to save!

Refrain:
Hallelujah! joyful story,
Jesus comes, the King of glory!
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Jesus comes, comes to save.

2 While like rain our tears are falling,
Jesus comes, comes to save!
While these souls for help are calling,
Jesus comes, comes to save! [Refrain]

3 Glorious light is dawning o’er us,
Jesus comes, comes to save!
And the way grows bright before us,
Jesus comes, comes to save! [Refrain]

4 Hallelujah! saints are singing,
Jesus comes, comes to save!
Heav’n with joyous song is ringing,
Jesus comes, comes to save! [Refrain]
