Hark! an awful voice is sounding,
Christ is coming, seems to say;
We rejoice to hear the message;
O ye children, watch and pray.


He’s coming, He’s coming,
He’s coming to save His own;
He’s coming, He’s coming,
He’s coming to save His own.

Soon the Son of God is coming,
With the holy angel band;
Coming to receive His jewels,
Take them to a better land.


Shout the news, the Lord is coming,
Comes with pardon down from Heav’n;
Let us haste with tears and sorrow,
One and all to be forgiv’n.


O! the glorious, glorious coming,
Every faithful soul to save,
Every weary child to carry
Safely over Jordan’s wave.
