1 That will be a happy morning,
When He comes, when He comes;
Ended then our grief and mourning,
When He comes, when He comes;
All earth’s sorrowing and sadness,
Will be turned to joy and gladness,
When the King of glory comes,
When He comes.

Refrain:
When the King of glory comes,
What a glorious day,
When the King of glory comes,
Sin will pass away;
On the throne our king will reign,
All will be perfection then;
Peace will come to earth again,
When He comes.

2 Life will all be fairer, brighter,
When He comes, when He comes;
Hearts will then be purer, whiter,
When He comes, when He comes;
Christ, foretold in song and story,
Then will manifest His glory,
When the King of glory comes,
When He comes. [Refrain]

3 Lo! the day is swiftly waning,
When He comes, when He comes;
Ready be for His appearing,
When He comes, when He comes;
Soul, put on thy best adorning,
Patiently await the morning,
When the King of glory comes,
When He comes. [Refrain]
