If you know Leh­man’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of her (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


There’s a blessèd hope that thrills my heart to know
That the Christ who came to earth so long ago,
Bearing all our sins because He loved us so,
Promised He’d come back again some day.


Coming, oh, yes, He’s coming,
The very same as when He went away,
Coming, my Lord is coming,
Oh praise His blessèd name,
He’s coming back some day.

He who on the cross for me was cru­ci­fied,
He who for my sin and shame in anguish died,
He whose resurrection fully justified,
Promised He’d come back again some day.


When He comes again ’twill be as King of kings,
Perfect peace and joy to all the earth He’ll bring,
Then throughout eternity, His praise we’ll sing,
When, in glo­ry, He returns some day.
