1 Jesus is coming! awake the glad song,
Coming again, coming again!
Join, all ye faithful, the strains to prolong,
Jesus is coming again!
Jesus is coming, the promise behold!
Coming with blessings to mortals untold,
Blessings more precious than silver or gold,
Jesus is coming again!

Refrain:
Coming again, coming again!
Jesus is coming again!
Soon shall our King in His glory appear,
Jesus is coming again!

2 Jesus is coming! O glorious day!
Coming again, coming again!
Darkness and terror will vanish away,
Jesus is coming again!
Lo, in His beauty the King we shall see,
Coming in glory for you and for me;
Sing with the ransomed the songs of the free,
Jesus is coming again! [Refrain]

3 Jesus is coming, Redeemer and Friend,
Coming again, coming again!
Strong to deliver and keep to the end,
Jesus is coming again!
Coming in might, and in majesty clad,
Making the tempted and sorrowing glad,
Beaming with joy on the tearful and sad,
Jesus is coming again! [Refrain]

4 Jesus is coming,—O, haste to prepare!—
Coming again, coming again!
Blessed are they who His triumph will share;
Jesus is coming again!
Earth, still thy throbbings of anguish and fear,
Hushed by thy murm’rings; His coming is near;
Soon shall our King in His glory appear,
Jesus is coming again! [Refrain]

19th Century "Robert Lowe Fletcher, the composer, will be at the South Avenue Congregational Church to-morrow, In the morning he will speak on 'The Conservative Life" and at night he will conduct an old-fashioned gospel singing service, when he will use some of his own compositions. Mr. Fletcher will ask the audience to assist him in the singing. Mr. Fletcher is an interesting person, and it is expected that he will attract a large number of strangers to the South Avenue Church." --from The Post-Standard, 26 November 1910 Go to person page >
