1 We are coming, blessed Saviour,
We hear thy gentle voice;
We would be thine for ever,
And in thy love rejoice.

We are coming, we are coming,
We are coming, blessed Saviour;
We are coming, we are coming,
We hear thy gentle voice.

2 We are coming, blessed Saviour,
To meet that happy band,
And sing with them for ever,
And in thy presence stand.

We are coming, &c.
To meet that happy band.

Our Father's house we see--
A glorious mansion ever
For children young as we.

Our Father's house we see.

That happy home is ours;
If here we gain thy favor,
We'll reach those fragrant bowers.

We are coming, &c.
That happy home is ours.

5 We are coming, blessed Saviour,
To crown our Jesus King,
And then with angels ever
His praises we will sing.

We are coming, &c.
To crown our Jesus King.
