Representative Text

1 On the resurrection morning
We shall hear the clarion warning,
Hear the call (shall hear the call)
Of trumpet loud (the trumpet loud);
From the tombs there shall come leaping
Those awakened from death’s sleeping,
At His coming (coming, coming),
At His coming in the clouds.

Refrain:
Sing hosannas, sing hosannas;
When the Lord each body raises,
We will shout and sing His praises,
At His coming (coming, coming),
At His coming in the clouds.

2 O what joy, what exultation,
When redeemed from every nation,
Shall compose (yes, shall compose)
The ransomed crowds (the ransomed crowds);
How each one will gladly greet Him,
How each heart will thrill to meet Him,
At His coming (coming, coming),
At His coming in the clouds. [Refrain]

3 Robes of white will there be given,
As we enter into Heaven,
Casting off (yes, casting off)
The somber shrouds (all somber shrouds);
Never care or never sorrow
We shall know on that bright morrow,
For He’s coming (coming, coming),
Yes, He’s coming in the clouds. [Refrain]

4 Friends who long ago departed
Left us lone and brokenhearted,
As we went (yes, as we went)
In sorrow bowed (in sorrow bowed);
We shall greet with fond embraces,
As we gaze into their faces,
At His coming (coming, coming),
At His coming in the clouds. [Refrain]
