Lift up your heads, pilgrims aweary,
See day’s approach now crimson the sky;
Night shadows flee, and your Belovèd,
Awaited with longing, at last draweth nigh.


He is coming again, He is coming again,
The very same Je­sus, rejected of men;
He is coming again, He is coming again,
With power and great glo­ry, He is coming again!

Dark was the night, sin warred against us;
Heavy the load of sorrow we bore;
But now we see signs of His coming;
Our hearts glow within us, joy’s cup runneth o’er!


O blessèd hope! O blissful promise!
Filling our hearts with rapture divine;
O day of days! Hail Thy appearing!
Thy transcendent glo­ry for­ev­er shall shine.


Even so, come, precious Lord Je­sus;
Creation waits re­demp­tion to see;
Caught up in clouds, soon we shall meet Thee;
O blessèd assurance, for­ev­er with Thee!
