Representative Text

1 When the Saviour had gone into heaven,
And a cloud had received Him from sight;
Watching angels foretold His disciples,
That again they should see Him in light.

He is coming again, O believe it,
His promise is true, then receive it;
He is coming for you, He is coming for me,
He is coming to gather His own.

2 “This same Jesus, now gone into heaven,
In like manner shall so come again;”
And your eyes shall behold Him in glory,
For His kingdom shall rule over men. [Refrain]

3 He is coming again as He promised,
When the war-clouds have all rolled away;
And His beautiful feet on the mountains
Shall betoken the dawning of day. [Refrain]
