Representative Text

1. When the Lord from Heav’n appears,
When are banished all our fears,
When the sleepers from the tomb,
With the watchers reach their home.

Then enthroned our Lord with Thee,
We shall reign eternally,
Then enthroned our Lord with Thee,
We shall reign eternally,

2. When our eyes the King shall see,
In His glorious majesty,
When to Him we’re called above,
Partners of His joy and love. [Refrain]

3. Debtors to His matchless grace,
At His feet our crowns will place,
And as ages roll along,
Still will sing the glad new song. [Refrain]

4. Let this hope now purify
Those who on Thy Word rely;
Comfort to our hearts afford,
’Till the coming of the Lord. [Refrain]
