Émile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865–1950)


Have you known the won­drous sto­ry,
Jesus’ com­ing draw­eth near?
And the Lord of life and glo­ry,
On the cloud will soon ap­pear?


This Je­sus, this same Je­sus,
Who once died for men,
Will re­turn again,
Forever and for­ev­er
As the King of kings
On this earth to reign.

For the signs are fast ful­fill­ing
In the earth, the sea, the sky,
And with hope our hearts are thrill­ing—
Our re­demp­tion draw­eth nigh.


Then the loved whom death had parted,
On that re­sur­rect­ion day
Meet, no long­er brok­en heart­ed—
Tears have all been wiped away.


O we long for Thine ap­pear­ing!
How our hearts with­in us burn,
As we know the hour is near­ing,
When the Sav­ior will re­turn.
