Coming in the Clouds

Representative Text

1 When the Lord shall come in glory on the Coronation Day,
When its everlasting light on us is dawning,
All the clouds of time shall vanish, and the shadows flee away,
When we waken in the resurrection morning.

In the morning, blessed morning,
O the glory of the resurrection morning!
We shall gather at his side,
In his likeness, satisfied,
When we waken in the resurrection morning.

2 When the ties so sadly severed shall be reunited there,
Where shall enter nevermore a pain or sorrow,
We shall know his joy excelleth ev'ry longing, ev'ry prayer,
When we waken on that blest, eternal morrow. [Chorus]

3 When the fight with sin is over, and the victors robed in white
Meet in that blest Home where harps are ever ringing,
They shall praise the mighty Saviour who hath given life and light,
"Unto him who lov'd us," all the ransom'd singing. [Chorus]
