1. Jesus the King is coming
Lo, in the eastern sky,
Signs of approaching glory;
Surely redemption draweth nigh.

Coming, coming,
Coming again for me;
Soon I shall see my Savior,
Like Him I then shall be.

2. Jesus is quickly coming;
’Twill not be very long
Ere we shall hail our bridegroom
With all the bright, angelic throng. [Refrain]

3. Then all who sleep in Jesus,
Waking shall upward rise;
We who remain, together
With them caught up to paradise. [Refrain]

4. O what a glorious prospect!
O what a hope divine!
Thru the eternal ages
Jesus will be forever mine. [Refrain]

5. Heir to the life immortal,
Joint ruler on His throne,
Partaker of His glory,
Jesus will be my very own. [Refrain]

6. Glory to God the Father,
Glory to Christ the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit
For our redemption freely won. [Refrain]
