1 Let all the ransomed unite to sing
Praises to Jesus our conqu’ring King;
let all the joy-bells of heaven ring:
Jesus is coming soon.

Chorus:
Coming soon, Jesus is coming soon;
King of the nations, our glorious Groom,
Coming soon.

2 Sings in the earth and the starry sky
Loudly proclaim our redemption nigh;
Lift up your head, and with fervor cry,
Jesus is coming soon. [Chorus]

3 War and commotion in ev’ry land
Point to the end with unerring hand;
Christian, prepare in your lot to stand—
Jesus is coming soon. [Chorus]

4 Savior, come quickly! Thy children pray;
Bring restitution, and speed the day
When want and sorrow shall pass away—
Jesus is coming soon. [Chorus]
