Lyrics

Let all the ran­somed unite to sing
Praises to Je­sus our con­quer­ing king;
Let all the joy-bells of Hea­ven ring—
Jesus is com­ing soon.

Refrain

Coming soon, Je­sus is com­ing soon;
King of the na­tions, our glo­ri­ous groom,
Coming soon.

Signs in the earth and the star­ry sky
Loudly pro­claim our re­demp­tion nigh;
Lift up your head, and with fer­vor cry,
Jesus is com­ing soon.

Refrain

War and com­mo­tion in ev­ery land
Point to the end with uner­ring hand;
Christian, pre­pare in your lot to stand—
Jesus is com­ing soon.
