1 There’s a joyful word that I know is true,
All too sweet for tongue or pen;
Some glad, happy day, not so far away,
He is coming back again.

Refrain:
He is coming back again,
He is coming back again,
I shall see my King, loud His praises sing,
He is coming back again.

2 Though He lives above in the glory-land,
Far beyond all mortal ken,
Like a chime of bells in His Book it tells,
He is coming back again. [Refrain]

3 I shall see His face, oh, the blessed thought,
Tho’ I know not where, nor when;
Kneel in rapture sweet at His holy feet,
He is coming back again. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
