1 Spread the news of the coming
Of the Savior again,
For His signs are appearing in the skies;
Shout, ye burdened in spirit,
Who have travailed in pain,
For He comes to wipe your weeping eyes.

Rise and shout, Hallelujah! For He comes,
Rise and shout, Hallelujah! For He comes;
Rise and shout, Hallelujah! For He comes,
And we’ll all go to meet Him by and by.

2 Keep your lamps trimmed and burning,
For the time draweth nigh,
When the saints that go weeping shall rejoice;
For we’ll mount up to meet Him
As He comes in the sky,
When we hear the porter’s welcome voice. [Refrain]

3 Howl and weep, all ye nations
Who have gone far astray,
For the time surely cometh by and by,
When your vain, empty pleasures
Shall like clouds flee away,
When you hear the shouting in the sky. [Refrain]

4 Lo! His signs are now gathering,
As the light on us dawns,
For the bride’s dressed in linen clean and white;
And the Bridegroom is coming
Whom she’s looked for so long,
With ten thousand, thousand saints in light. [Refrain]
