Lyrics

I shall be glad when Jesus comes,
Come when or how He may,
Glad when in majesty He comes
Who shall set all things right.

Refrain

I shall be glad when Jesus comes,
Jesus who died for me;
Oh, to behold Him on His throne,
And all His glory see.

I shall be glad to know the end
Of selfish and sordid might,
Glad when in majesty He comes
Who shall set all things right.

Refrain

I shall be glad when Christ hath wrought
His glorious will in me,
When to the likeness of His thought
I shall transfigured be.

Refrain

Will you be glad when Jesus comes?
Oh, sinner, what can you say?
Are you prepared to welcome Him
And dwell with Christ for aye?

Will you be glad when Jesus comes,
Jesus of Calvary?
Would you behold Him on His throne,
And all His glory see?
