Full Text

1 Jesus is coming as yonder he went,
How wonderful seemeth the story;
His own kept alive, to see the event,
Caught up to meet him in glory.

Caught up to meet him in glory,
And ever to be with him then;
How wonderful, seemeth the story,
Repeat it again and again.

2 Jesus is coming, but when it shall be
No angel has been told the story;
The day and the hour is deep mystery;
Caught up to meet him in glory. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is coming his loved ones to claim,
His word is the proof of the story;
All those shall be safe who trust in his name,
Caught up to meet him in glory. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is coming with archangel voice,
How wonderful soundeth the story;
Too late it will be to then make a choice,
His own will meet him in glory. [Refrain]
