1 I shall be glad when Jesus comes,
Come when or how He may,
Glad when in majesty He comes
Who shall set all things right.

Refrain:
I shall be glad when Jesus comes,
Jesus who died for me;
Oh, to behold Him on His throne,
And all His glory see.

2 I shall be glad to know the end
Of selfish and sordid might,
Glad when in majesty He comes
Who shall set all things right. [Refrain]

3 I shall be glad when Christ hath wrought
His glorious will in me,
When to the likeness of His thought
I shall transfigured be. [Refrain]

4 Will you be glad when Jesus comes?
Oh, sinner, what can you say?
Are you prepared to welcome Him
And dwell with Christ for aye?

Refrain:
Will you be glad when Jesus comes,
Jesus of Calvary?
Would you behold Him on His throne,
And all His glory see?
