#155: He Is Coming Again

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Lift up your heads, pilgrims aweary!

See day’s approach no crimson the sky;

Night shadows flee, and your Beloved,

Awaited with longing, at last draweth nigh.

CHORUS

He is coming again, He is coming again,

The very same Jesus rejected of me;

He is coming again, He is coming again,

With pow’r and great glory,

He is coming again!

2

Dark was the night — sin warred against us!

Heavy the load of sorrow we bore;

But now we see signs of His coming —

Our hearts glow within us, joy’s cup runneth o’er!

CHORUS

3

O blessed hope! O blissful promise!

Filling our hearts with rapture divine;

O day of days! hail Thy appearing!

Thy transcendent glory forever shall shine!

CHORUS

4

Even so, come, precious Lord Jesus!

Creation waits redemption to see;

Caught up in clouds, soon we shall meet Thee —

O blessed assurance, forever with Thee!

CHORUS
