The glorious change

Full Text

1. Soon shall our Saviour in glory appear,
Soon his sweet voice from above we shall hear;
When he shall speak what a change there will be!
From every burden we then shall be free.

Oh, what a change! glorious change!
Oh, what a glorious change!
We shall be changed when our Lord comes again;
Come then, Lord Jesus, come quickly, Amen.

2. Then in a moment a flash of the eye
We shall be changed and we never can die;
Then shall our bodies, so weak and so frail,
Over all sickness forever prevail. [Chorus]

3. No more gray hairs, for we'll never grow old;
Heartaches shall never be known we are told.
Forms that are blighted and wasting away
Changed and immortal shall never decay. [Chorus]

4. Oh, hallelujah, what joy fills the soul!
Peace shall be ours while the bright ages roll;
Changed to the image of Jesus our King
Satisfied then in his likeness we'll sing. [Chorus]
