Representative Text

1 Oh, the Lord will soon return,
And the earth in flames shall burn,
When He comes, when He comes;
We shall see Him, every eye,
Swiftly flying thro’ the sky,
When He comes, when He comes.

Refrain:
When He comes, when He comes,
He will judge the quick and dead,
When He comes.

2 Hear His voice from shore to shore,
Crying, “Time shall be no more,”
When He comes, when He comes;
Then if you are found in sin,
You can never dwell with Him,
When He comes, when He comes. [Refrain]

3 Wake, ye nations from the ground,
Gabriel’s trumpet then shall sound,
When He comes, when He comes;
All the dead in sea and land
Shall arise at His command,
When He comes, when He comes. [Refrain]

4 Seek salvation while ’tis day,
Earth will melt and pass away,
When He comes, when He comes;
You’ll be lost in hope of grace,
And a future resting place,
When He comes, when He comes. [Refrain]
