Representative Text

1 O'er all the land have the signs now appeared,
Telling us soon our dear Saviour will come;
Long has the worn pilgrim watched, hoped, and feared,
Waiting for that blessed hope; O come, Saviour, come.

Chorus:
Sound forth the tidings, long, loud, and clear;
Jesus is coming, and soon will appear;
All hearts respond as we long for our home,
"Quickly come, O blessed Jesus, come, Saviour, come."

2 Signs in the sun and the moon and the stars,
Faithfully show that the great day is near;
Nations distressed by the rumors of wars,
And the hearts of wicked men are failing for fear. [Chorus]

3 These, to the pilgrim, are omens of cheer,
Toiling and sighing in Lord's loving voice;
Those who will now all their errors forsake,
Soon the pearly gates will enter; sing and rejoice. [Chorus]

4 Then let us rally, and fresh courage take;
Soon will we hear our dear Lord's loving voice;
Those who will now all their errors forsake,
Soon the pearly gates will enter; sing and rejoice. [Chorus]
