Representative Text

1 He will come, the Lord of Glory,
From His home beyond the skies;
He will come, oh wondrous story!
For His promise never dies;
And we’ll hail Him “blest Redeemer,
Lamb of God for sinners slain,”
And we’ll bow in adoration,
While we sing the glad refrain.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Prince of Peace! Eternal King!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Let the vaults of heaven ring;
Laud and honor, praise and glory,
To the Lamb for sinners slain;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Christ is coming back again!

2 With the trump of God resounding,
And a shout of victory,
He will burst the clouds asunder,
Sweeping on triumphantly;
And the saints will quickly gather,
As the dead in Christ arise,
With a shout of joyful greeting,
To the Saviour in the skies. [Refrain]

3 Day of days, we wait and languish,
‘Mid a world of sin and woe,
Watching for the blest appearing,
Of the One who loves us so;
Home at last and reunited,
Far above the things of time,
‘Twill be glory, glory, glory,
‘Mid the realms of light sublime. [Refrain]
