Representative Text

1 Jesus is coming,
The promise has been giv’n,
Jesus is coming,
To take us all to Heav’n;
Jesus is coming,
The advent draweth nigh;
Oh, how glorious,
That we may never die.

Refrain:
Jesus is coming,
Coming back again;
Jesus is coming,
Sing the sweet refrain;
Jesus is coming,
Coming to earth again;
Jesus is coming,
Coming back to reign.

2 Jesus is coming,
To those who long for Heav’n;
Jesus is coming
To those whose all is giv’n.
Jesus is coming!
Come quickly, Lord, we cry;
Oh, how glorious,
Thy portents we espy. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is coming,
To those whose hearts are riv’n;
Jesus is coming,
To those with all forgiv’n.
Jesus is coming!
Oh, let our tears be dry;
Oh, how glorious,
When we ascend on high. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is coming,
To see Him we have striv’n.
Jesus is coming,
To meet Him grace is giv’n.
Jesus is coming!
No longer breathe a sigh,
Oh, how glorious,
He cometh from on high. [Refrain]
