Lyrics

Jesus is our loving shepherd,
And He is a faithful guide;
He is coming back from Heaven
For the church of Christ, His bride.

Refrain

He has promised all the faithful
That He’ll come to earth again;
And to glory will receive them,
Evermore with Him to reign.

We are watching now, and waiting,
For the coming of our Lord;
He is coming for His loved ones,
As He promised in His Word.

Refrain

Yes, He’s coming back from glory,
Coming to this world again;
He will gather up His jewels,
Safely kept in His own name.
