When Is Christ Coming?

He is coming when you love Him

Author: Horace Eaton Walker
Tune: [He is coming when you love Him]
Published in 2 hymnals

Audio files: MIDI

Representative Text

1 He is coming when you love him,
When you love him as you should;
When your heart is pure and honest,
And the world you have withstood.

Yes, he’s coming, coming, coming,
He is coming with his love;
When the world shall bow and ask him:
“Come, oh Jesus, from above!”

2 He is coming in his glory
When the world shall find his love;
When the Church knows only Jesus,
Seeks the home prepared above. [Refrain]

3 So, he’s waiting, ever waiting,
For the whole world to proclaim:
“On our knees we ask thy coming;
Christ, we breathe thy holy name!” [Refrain]

4 He is waiting for the summons
Till the world’s door stands ajar;
He will come if we but ask him,
Let us ask, he is not far. [Refrain]
