1. There is coming on a great day of rejoicing,
When all the ransomed shall gather, their Lord as king to crown;
All earth’s sorrow and its sin then disappearing,
Every heart will the Savior then own.

O the crowning day is coming,
O the crowning day is coming,
Praise the Lord!
For our Savior-King shall reign,
He shall have His own again,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

2. From far distant lands battalions now are marching,
Who will have part in the honors which Jesus will bestow;
God be praised for all the souls that now are starting,
Swelling the hosts that to victory go. [Refrain]

3. Do you, comrades, feel at times a bit downhearted,
When in the fight all looks dark, and the foe seems fierce and strong?
At such times I find my fear has all departed
When I remember that day coming on. [Refrain]
