1 He is coming, coming for us;
Soon we’ll see His light afar,
On the dark horizon rising,
As the Bright and Morning Star,
Cheering many a waking watcher,—
As the star whose kindly ray
Heralds the approaching morning
Just before the break of day.
Oh! what joy as night hangs round us
‘Tis to think of morning’s ray;
Sweet to know He’s coming for us,
Just before the break of day.

2 He is coming, coming for us;
Soon we’ll hear His voice on high;
Dead and living, rising, changing,
In the twinkling of an eye
Shall be caught up all together
For the meeting in the air;
With a shout the Lord, descending,
Shall Himself await us there.
Oh! what joy that great foregath’ring,
Trysted meeting in the air;
Sweet to know He’s coming for us,
Calling us to join Him there.

3 He is coming—oh! how solemn
When the Judge’s voice is heard,
And in His own light He shows us
Ev’ry tho’t and act and word!
Deeds of merit as we tho’t them,
He will show us were but sin;
Little acts we had forgotten,
He will tell us were for Him.
Oh! what joy when He imputeth
Righteousness instead of sin;
Sweet to take the linen garments,
All a gift, and all from Him.

4 He is coming as the Bridegroom,
Coming to unfold at last
The great secret of His purpose,
mystery of ages past;
And the Bride, to her is granted
In His beauty now to shine,
As in rapture she exclaimeth,
“I am His, and He is mine.”
Oh! what joy that marriage union,
Mystery of love divine;
Sweet to sin, in all its fullness,
“I am His, and He is mine.”
