1 I have read how the Lord,
When a babe in Bethlehem,
In a humble manger cradle was lain;
What He bore for a world which
His love would not condemn,
And I learned that He is coming back again.

Refrain:
He is coming back again,
And o’er the universe to reign;
He’s not coming back to die,
But will take us home on high,
Yes, our blessèd Lord is coming back again.

2 I have read how He died
On the cross of Calvary,
Where He shed His precious blood, and was slain;
He who preached to the poor, and
Who made the blind to see,
Told them He was surely coming back again. [Refrain]

3 Then I read how the Lord,
When the thorn crown pressed His brow,
Asked forgiveness for the evil in men;
How He told His disciples
That He must leave them now,
But He promised He was coming back again. [Refrain]
