Representative Text

1 Loud let the anthem exultingly ring,
Angels with mortals unitedly sing;
Jesus is coming, our conquering king;
Jesus is coming again.

Coming again, coming again,
Coming in glory, the Lamb that was slain;
Coming again, coming again,
Coming forever to reign.

2 Wonders on earth, in the sea and the sky,
Voices proclaiming redemption is nigh,
When from His face every sinner will fly—
Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]

3 Angry, the nations are plunged into woe,
Multitudes hurrying on to and fro;
These are but signs of His coming, we know;
Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]

4 Then all our loved ones from sleep will arise,
Caught up together to meet in the skies—
Family reunions in joyful surprise:
Jesus is coming again. [Refrain]

5 Savior, O hasten that glorious day!
Coming with clouds, in triumphal array,
Many will greet thee: Lord grant that we may,
When Thou art coming again. [Refrain]
