1 When Jesus comes in glory to call his loved ones home,
To bear his ransomed ones from earth away;
It may be in the morning, it may be in the night,
It may be at the dawn of day.

Refrain:
I’ll be ready for his coming, when he comes,
I’ll be ready for his coming, when he comes;
I am now a child of God,
For I’m saved thro’ Jesus’ blood,
I’ll be ready for his coming, when he comes.

2 It may be in the spring time amid the bud and bloom,
It may be when the hills with snow are white,
That Christ in all his glory shall call his own away
To regions of eternal light. [Refrain]

3 I’ll watch for his appearing with heart kept free from sin,
I’ll strive to live more like him every day,
That should he come in glory ere death should seal my lips,
He’ll bear me to my home away. [Refrain]

4 So, then, I’ll e’er be watching and praying as I wait,
For tho’ the time to no one is made known,
The hour may be approaching when to the radiant skies
The King of kings shall call his own. [Refrain]
