Jesus has been taken to Heaven. But He will come back in the same way that you have seen Him go.@Acts 1:11

E. S. Mans­field, 1882.

D. R. Mans­field (🔊 pdf nwc).

Oh, the Lamb that was slain,
Soon is coming again,
Coming back in His kingly array;
The bright glory light,
As it breaks on our sight,
Shines the curse of the earth all away.

Refrain

Oh, the better day is coming,
The day-star is shining,
The better day is coming by and by;
Oh, the better day is coming,
In the dawning of the morning,
The better day is coming by and by.

Then look up, weary saint,
For thy mourning shall end,
And the fountain of tears shall be dried:
Sing, joyfully sing,
Unto Jesus the King,
Who will reign with His bride at His side.

Refrain

Wandering child, lone and sad,
From thy Father’s abode,
On the mountain of sin, dark and cold,
The kind Shepherd waits,
With a light at the gate,
He is calling thee back to the fold.

Refrain

Roll away, sky of blue,
Let the Savior come thro’—
Angry nations rush on to the fray;
But saints clad in white,
And the angels in light,
With the conquering Lamb, win the day.
