Lyrics

As once to earth the Sav­ior came,
Sometime He’ll come again;
The sky with heav’n­ly light aflame,
Sometime He’ll come again.

Refrain

Sometime, some­time,
Christ shall come to reign.
Prepare my soul to meet Him,
Sometime He’ll come again.

Tell ev­ery­where with great de­light,
Sometime He’ll come again;
Upon the clouds of glo­ry bright,
Sometime He’ll come again.

Refrain

O’er all the earth the tid­ings ring,
Sometime He’ll come again;
Not as a babe, but as a king,
Sometime He’ll come again.

Refrain

When dawns that bless­èd morn­ing fair,
Sometime He’ll come again;
His saints will meet Him in the air,
Sometime He’ll come again.

Refrain

O let us live and do our best,
Sometime He’ll come again;
Then He will take us home to rest,
Sometime He’ll come again.
