Then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.@Matthew 24:30–37

When the Lord shall come in glory,
In the clouds from Heav’n descending,
What rejoicing there will be;
All the saved shall rise to meet Him
On that bright and cloudless morning,
At His coming in the clouds.

Refrain

He is coming, in the clouds,
Hallelujah! Shout hosannas!
All the saved shall rise to meet Him,
At His coming in the clouds.

He is coming, Christ is coming,
With the heav’nly hosts descending,
Hallelujah, praise His name!
Will you be among the number
That shall rise to meet and greet Him
At His coming in the clouds?

Refrain

When He comes in clouds descending,
And the dead who loved and served Him
From their graves with joy come forth;
Soul and body reunited,
Clothed in garments bright, immortal,
At His coming in the clouds.

Refrain

No more sickness, no more dying,
No more gloom our visions shroud;
But a day of glory dawning,
Far above the sun in brightness,
At His coming in the clouds.

Refrain
