1 Hear the glad tidings, O Bride of the Bridegroom!
Rouse ye from slumber, the night is far gone;
Mystic in splendor, the morning star shineth,
Heralding ever the nearing of dawn.
Jesus is coming, O sing hallelujah!
Jesus is coming in glory to reign;
Yes, He is coming, O sing hallelujah!
Jesus is coming again.
2 Loins should be girded, and lights should be burning,
Watchmen are sounding the Jubilee horn;
Zion, her head from the dust is now lifting,
Hailing the break of that glorious morn. [Refrain]
3 Cloudless the morning for which we have waited,
Waited so wearily, waited so long!
Now it is coming, O sing hallelujah!
Sing it! For this is the true glory song. [Refrain]
4 Sleeping or waking, redeemed ones together
Caught up the King in His beauty shall see!
Death with its sting, shall again threaten never;
We like our Lord shall forevermore be. [Refrain]
