1 When you see Christ coming in the clouded sky,
Will you haste to meet him with joy?
With the holy angels he will soon draw nigh;
Will you haste to meet him with joy?
He will come to receive his own,
He will come to reward the true;
When he doth appear and his hosts draw near,
Will he bring any crown for you?

2 When the saints are singing on that happy day,
Will you join in sounding his praise?
“Thou art worthy, worthy! Shall the ransomed say,
Will you join in sounding his praise?
Will your heart overflow with love?
Will your eyes feast upon the sight?
When his face you see will his presence be
As a fount of supreme delight?

3 In his flaming glory he will soon appear;
Can you stand before him that day?
As his holy people gladly gather near,
Can you stand before him that day?
Will he find in your soul his grace?
Will he see you from sin are free?
When he testeth you in his balance true.
What, oh, what will his judgment be?

4 Unto heaven’s splendor he will soon return;
Will he take you with him to dwell?
To that land for which the ransomed ever yearn,
Will he take you with him to dwell?
Does a mansion await you there,
And a welcome to home, sweet home?
To that city fair, with its pleasures rare,
Will you soon with the righteous come?
