1 Like the firmament for brightness,
Like the glowing stars that shine,
Like the drifted snow for whiteness,
“They shall all in heav’n be mine”
At that great and glorious day,
That is hast’ning on its way;
When He cometh, when He counteth up His jewels.

Refrain:
When He cometh in His glory from on High,
When He counteth up His jewels by and by;
O what heav’nly peace and joy
Will be ours without alloy,
At that great and glorious day,
That is hast’ning on its way;
When He cometh, when He counteth up His jewels.

2 Thro’ the clouds of heav’n descending,
He shall come as earth’s true King;
Hallelujahs! grand ascending,
In His glorious praise shall ring
At that great and glorious day,
That is hast’ning on its way;
When He cometh, when He counteth up His jewels. [Refrain]

3 WE shall be with Christ forever,
So His tender love hath planned;
Pain and parting come there never,
In that better, brighter land,
At that great and glorious day,
That is hast’ning on its way;
When He cometh, when He counteth up His jewels. [Refrain]

4 “Come, ye blessed of My Father,”—
Hear the words of Christ the Son!
Of the ransomed hosts that meet Him,
By His grace will you be one?
At that great and glorious day,
That is hast’ning on its way;
When He cometh, when He counteth up His jewels. [Refrain]
