Jesus my Savior, reigning in glory,
Bids me to watch, to wait and to pray;
For He is coming, wonderful story,
Coming from Heaven some happy day.


I shall be like Him, I shall be like Him,
And in His glory I shall share;
I shall be like Him, wondrously like Him,
Glorious image I shall bear.

Jesus is coming; hail the glad morning,
Coming to take the faithful ones home;
And I shall see Him, in His adorning,
I shall be like Him when He comes.


Jesus is coming, soon I shall see Him,
Soon I shall hear the glorious word,
Thou hast been faithful, good and true servant,
Enter ye into the joy of thy Lord.
