Representative Text

1 Jesus is coming, is coming again;
Shout the glad tidings, the good news proclaim;
Jesus is coming a King on His throne,
Jesus is coming to welcome His own.

Refrain:
Jesus is coming, repeat the refrain;
Jesus is coming, is coming again.

2 Jesus is coming, redeemed ones, be glad;
Put on the garments of beauty— be clad;
Watching and waiting be, soon He will come,
Come in His grandeur to welcome you home. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is coming; O sinner, awake!
Free is salvation to all who partake;
Drink at the fountain that flows full and free,
Mercy and pardon are offered to thee. [Refrain]
