Lyrics

Precious promise of our Lord,
Jesus is coming, is coming again;
’Tis written in His blessèd Word,
Jesus is coming, is coming again.

Refrain

He is coming, coming,
Jesus is coming again;
When He comes
He’ll take all His children home,
Jesus is coming, is coming again.

When we see the lightning fly,
Jesus is coming, is coming again;
The stars all falling from the sky,
Jesus is coming, is coming again.

Refrain

When we hear the thunder roll,
Jesus is coming, is coming again;
The heavens passing as a scroll,
Jesus is coming, is coming again.

Refrain

When the angel takes his stand,
Jesus is coming, is coming again;
One foot on sea and one on land,
Jesus is coming, is coming again.

Refrain

When we hear His coming feet,
Jesus is coming, is coming again;
The earth will melt with fervent heat,
Jesus is coming, is coming again.

Refrain

When He gathers all His own,
Jesus is coming, is coming again;
The wicked left will weep and moan,
Jesus is coming, is coming again.
