Peter P. Bilhorn


Christ is coming, and all nations shall behold Him;
Every knee shall bow and call Him Lord and king;
Every tongue shall then confess
Of His love and righteousness;
He is coming, all His ransomed home to bring.


Christ is coming, Christ is coming,
And His righteousness and glory we shall see;
Christ is coming, Christ is coming,
He is coming soon to welcome you and me.

Christ is coming, not as once—a man of sorrow—
But as king of earth and Heaven He shall reign;
War and strife and greed shall cease,
Over all the earth be peace,
He is coming, Christ the Lamb for sinners slain.


Christ is coming, oh, what rapture to behold Him!
Robed in splendor and in glory He shall be;
Darkest night shall flee apace
At the brightness of His face,
Hallelujah! He is coming soon for me.


Christ is coming, oh, my people, are you ready?
Can you meet the Lord if He should come tonight?
Will you hear the words, Well done,
Or the awful word, Begone!
He is coming in His glory and His might.
