From Heav’n to this re­gion of sor­row,
The Sav­ior is com­ing again;
Oh! could you re­ceive Him to­mor­row,
With spir­it made free from all stain!


Our bless­èd Re­deem­er is com­ing again,
Coming again, com­ing again;
Be rea­dy to meet and to wel­come Him then,
He sure­ly is com­ing again.

Oh! seek you to­day for sal­va­tion,
The Sav­ior is com­ing again;
You may not re­ceive con­do­na­tion,
If long­er in sin you re­main!


Rejoice, oh! ye ran­somed, with sing­ing,
The Sav­ior is com­ing again;
Release to His chos­en ones bring­ing—
A home in that peace­ful do­main!
