Representative Text

1 Lift up your voices, oh, loud let them ring,
Jesus is coming again;
Cheer up, ye pilgrims, be joyful and sing!
For Jesus is coming again.

Jesus is coming, is coming again,
Jesus is coming again,
Coming in glory forever to reign,
Jesus is coming again.

2 Echo it, hilltop! proclaim it, ye plain!
Jesus is coming again;
Coming in glory, the Lamb that was slain,
For Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]

3 Sound it, old ocean, in mightiest wave!
Jesus is coming again;
Tell to the islands and shores that ye lave,
For Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]

4 Soon we’ll be winging our flight through the air,
Jesus is coming again;
Meet our beloved his glory, to share,
For Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]
