In the glo­ry of the Fa­ther
When our Lord shall come again,
By His an­gel guards at­tend­ed,
In His ma­jes­ty to reign,


What a hal­le­lu­jah chorus,
What a shout­ing there will be,
When we ga­ther in the morn­ing,
And each oth­er’s face we see!

At the sound­ing of the trum­pet,
When the dead in Christ will rise,
And the bright­ness of His pre­sence
Shall adorn the glow­ing skies,


When the book of life is op­ened,
With our names re­cord­ed there,
And with all the saints tri­um­phant
We shall meet Him in the air.


O that day of joy is com­ing,
And its dawn is draw­ing nigh;
We are watch­ing, we are wait­ing,
We shall hail it by and by.
