Representative Text

1 When the people of all nations have been told of Jesus’ birth,
And the story of his dying love is known;
When the tidings of salvation have been preach’d o’er all the earth,
He will come and claim his lov’d ones for his own.

Chorus:
We shall see him, we shall see him,
We shall see him in his beauty when the shadows flee away;
We shall see him, we shall see him,
We shall see him rob’d in beauty on that day.

2 When the Greenland’s icy mountains, and far India’s coral strand,
Ev’ry ear shall hear of Jesus Christ the Son;
How they mock’d him, how they scourg’d him, how they nail’d his loving hand,
How he died on Calv’ry’s cross for ev’ry one. [Chorus]

3 All the world shall hear the gospel, ev’ry knee before him bend,
Ev’ry tongue confess that he is Lord of all;
Then the grave shall burst asunder, and the ransom’d shall descend,
And the sea shall yield its treasures at his call. [Chorus]

4 Hark, we hear the trumpet sounding, see the heavens like a scroll
Rolling back, while angels rally at his call;
Then delay no longer, sinner, and your name for Christ enroll;
Even so, Lord Jesus, come and take us all. [Chorus]
