Time with its tem­pests is pass­ing away,
Some day, and soon it may be,
Jesus will come, oh, that glo­ri­ous day!
Coming in glo­ry for me.


The day of all days is com­ing at last,
The day of all days when sor­rows are past,
The day of all days when I thro’ His grace
Shall see with de­light His won­der­ful face.

Oh, what a won­der­ful joy to be there,
Praising the Lamb that was slain;
Rising to meet Him, caught up in the air!
Oh, He is com­ing again.


That is the won­der­ful day of all days,
That day when time shall be o’er;
Tongues of all na­tions will sing of His praise
On fair eter­ni­ty’s shore.
