1 We have heard the glorious news of our returning Lord;
Jesus is coming, hallelujah!
Now on all the earth abroad the latter rain is poured;
Jesus is coming, hallelujah!

The Savior is coming, is coming again,
Coming in glory, coming to reign;
Let the “little flock” rejoice and sing the glad refrain,
Jesus is coming, hallelujah!

2 We have seen the signs fulfilling ev’ry passing year;
Jesus is coming, hallelujah!
Tho’ the hearts of sinful men are failing them for fear;
Jesus is coming, hallelujah! [Chorus]

3 Let us bear the joyful news o’er ocean’s surging main,
Jesus is coming, hallelujah!
That the mighty King of kings if coming back again,
Jesus is coming, hallelujah! [Chorus]

4 Speed, O speed Thee on Thy way, Thou blessed Prince of Peace!
Jesus is coming, hallelujah!
When the golden morn shall break that brings from death release,
Jesus is coming, hallelujah! [Chorus]
