Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Christ Is Coming

Full Text

1 He is coming back in glory,
In the blest millennium time,
With the chanting angel chorus,
And the golden harps sublime,
Through the blending blue in beauty
Will the heavenly host appear,
And the saints shall rise to meet Him,
Crying, Jesus Christ is here.

2 He is coming back in glory,
Then the dead in Christ shall rise,
In the splendor of His presence
That will fill the earth and skies,
And the dawning of that morning
To the wondering earth will bring
All the majesty, and the sovereignty,
Of Jesus Christ, the Lord and King.

3 All the towers of time shall crumble
That were built upon the sand,
But the mansions of God’s chosen
In bright majesty shall stand;
Rolling tide, and mighty deep,
See the overwhelming flood:
Nowhere will there be a refuge
For the soul, save in Jesus’ blood.

4 Come, you saints of God, be ready
For adown the heavenly street,
Shining angels strew their garlands
For the coming of His feet;
Tribulation and fear will pass away,
Gone the darkness and the pain,
Bars of hell will break at last,
Christ has come to forever reign.
