O I wonder when Jesus
Is coming again,
His waiting believers to bless;
And gather to Heaven
His faithful ones, then,
And give them sweet heavenly rest?


O, Jesus is coming again!
O, Jesus is coming again!
O brother, rejoice! for the promise is sure,
Yes, Jesus is coming again.

O when will the angels
Their shouting begin,
When Jesus our Savior
Will come,
To conquer forever
The kingdom of sin,
And take all His chosen ones home?


Many loved ones will meet us
And cheer our glad souls,
Our joys will be full then, I know;
Hallelujahs will ring
When we enter the goal,
O Christian, be ready to go!


O sinner, delay not,
The time is too near,
It may be e’en now at your door;
O come to the Savior,
There’s nothing to fear,
While Jesus is walking before!
