Representative Text

1. I know that some day from His heavenly throne,
The blessèd Redeemer of men
Will come in His glory to gather His own;
He is coming, is coming again.

Perhaps in the morning His face I shall see,
The Redeemer and Savior of men;
And oh, what a glorious day that will be!
He is coming, is coming again!

2. I know when He comes it will be as a King,
Forever and ever to reign;
So watching and waiting for Him will I sing,
He is coming, is coming again. [Refrain]

3. Some day amid angels of heavenly light
And glorified loved ones He’ll come;
Come quickly, Lord Jesus, in splendor and might:
He is coming, is coming again. [Refrain]
