Representative Text

1 Jesus cometh! Jesus cometh,
For the jewels all his own;
Little children are his jewels,
They should shine for him alone.

Chorus:
Children, children,
Are the jewels bright and fair,
Precious jewels,
Gathered for the King to wear.

2 In his crown of light and beauty
By and by these gems shall shine;
"When I come," the Lord has told us,
"I will call these jewels mine." [Chorus]

3 Jesus cometh, watch, be ready,
Fear the Lord, be pure, be true;
Oh, be just, and ever freely
Give, as he has given you. [Chorus]

4 Willing workers for the Master,
In the Saviour's service true;
Look to Jesus who has loved you,
Do what he would have you do. [Chorus]
