Coming in glory

Representative Text

1 He has gone out of sight, our joy and light,
But O hark to the rest of the story!
He is coming again! O tell it to men!
“This same Jesus” is coming in glory!

“This same Jesus” is coming in glory,
In glory, in glory!
The heavens will rend, and He will descend,
With the saints and the angels in glory.

2 O the Bride that He sought, the Church that He bought,
Tho’ we now see her scorned and derided;
Will be crowned with her Head, the living and dead,
Crowned with Jesus in whom she confided. [Refrain]

3 And the kingdom to come, will quickly be won,
Not by men or thro’ human endeavor,
But when Christ shall return, His anger will burn,
And destroy Satan’s power forever. [Refrain]
