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.
