Jesus, my Savior, is coming again

Representative Text

1. Jesus, my Saviour, is coming again!
Sound out the tidings o'er earth and main;
Coming to gather His people and reign,
Coming to earth again.

Chorus:
Coming again, coming again,
Jesus is coming, prolong the strain;
Coming again, coming again,
Coming on earth to reign.

2. Jesus is coming, oh wonderful word!
Sweeter than any on earth I've heard;
He whom my soul over all hath preferr'd,
Coming to earth again. [Chorus]

3. Oh, can it be He is coming ere long,
He whom I'm trusting with faith so strong,
He who alone is the theme of my song,
Coming to earth again? [Chorus]

4. Why should the tidings bring gladness to me?
Surely mine eyes shall His beauty see;
And in His presence I ever shall be,
When He shall come again. [Chorus]

5. Thought of His coming my soul doth elate,
As in the gloaming I watch and wait,
Longing each day for the glorified state;
When He shall come again. [Chorus]

6. When He shall come all my grief will be o'er;
Friends I shall meet to forget no more,
Whom death remov'd in the dark days of yore,
Till He shall come again. [Chorus]
