Jesus is com­ing, is coming again;
Shout the glad tid­ings, the good news pro­claim!
Jesus is com­ing a king on His throne,
Jesus is com­ing to wel­come His own.


Jesus is com­ing, re­peat the re­frain;
Jesus is com­ing, is com­ing again.

Jesus is com­ing, re­deemed ones, be glad;
Put on the gar­ments of beau­ty—be clad;
Watching and wait­ing be, soon He will come,
Come in His gran­deur to wel­come you home.


Jesus is com­ing; O sin­ner, awake!
Free is sal­va­tion to all who par­take;
Drink at the foun­tain that flows full and free,
Mercy and par­don are of­fered to thee.
