1 When He comes again in glory,
Blessed Savior of the lost,
He who paid for our redemption,
And alone knew what the cost;
Since He died for me, a sinner,
Since He suffered on the tree,
To the promise of His coming
May I faithful be.

Till the day dawns and the shadows flee away, flee away,
Till the day dawns and the shadows flee away, flee away,
Guide me, O Thou dear Redeemer,
Keep me faithful all the way,
Till the day dawns and the shadows flee away.

2 If He comes at early morning,
When the dew is on the rose,
If He comes at purple twilight
When the evening zephyr blows,
May He find me ever watching,
Ever zealous, ever true,
Ever loyal to the work that
He would have me do. [Refrain]

3 In a flood of light supernal,
While the angle chorus sings,
With the hosts of heaven watching,
Trumpet sounds and joybell rings,
Oh, the glory of His coming,
From the throne in heav’n above,
Bringing down from realms eternal
Wonders of God’s love. [Refrain]
