Lyrics

Jesus comes, He comes in glo­ry,
Echoes through the ag­es hoa­ry,
Blessèd hope and thrill­ing sto­ry,
Hallelujah! Je­sus comes!

Refrain

Hope of all the ag­es past,
King of kings, He comes at last.
Up, ye saints of God awak­ing!
See the morn­ing light is break­ing!
Hallelujah! Je­sus comes!

Jesus comes, the dead are wak­ing,
Earth with mor­tal pangs is quak­ing;
Stars are fall­ing, heav­ens shak­ing,
Hallelujah! Je­sus comes!

Refrain

Jesus comes, in clouds des­cend­ing,
Sins re­strain­ing, sor­row end­ing,
Broken ties for­ev­er mend­ing,
Hallelujah! Je­sus comes!

Refrain

Jesus comes, all things re­stor­ing,
Cry aloud, His grace im­plor­ing,
Bow the knee, the King ador­ing,
Hallelujah! Je­sus comes!
