C. W. James (🔊 pdf nwc).

Soon I will hear my Lord say, Come,
To dwell with Him in yonder home,
And when life’s daylight fades away,
He’ll come for me at close of day.

Refrain

He’ll come for me, He’ll come for me,
To spend with Him eternity;
If here I love Him and obey,
He’ll come for me at close of day.

What tho’ the way is all unknown,
Yet I will not be all alone;
My Savior will point out the way,
And come for me at close of day.

Refrain

T’ward that fair mansion in the skies,
I often look with longing eyes;
But tho’ God wills me now to stay,
He’ll come for me at close of day.

Refrain

I want to do for God my best,
Before I enter into rest;
Then when I leave this house of clay,
He’ll come for me at close of day.

Refrain
