1 Hark! an awful voice is sounding,
"Christ is coming," seems to say;
We rejoice to hear the message;
O ye children, watch and pray.

He’s coming, He’s coming,
He’s coming to save His own;
He’s coming, He’s coming,
He’s coming to save His own.

2 Soon the Son of God is coming,
With the holy angel band;
Coming to receive His jewels,
Take them to a better land. [Refrain]

3 Shout the news, the Lord is coming,
Comes with pardon down from Heav’n;
Let us haste with tears and sorrow,
One and all to be forgiv’n. [Refrain]

4 O! the glorious, glorious coming,
Every faithful soul to save,
Every weary child to carry
Safely over Jordan’s wave. [Refrain]
