When the Lord in glory cometh
With His hosts in bright array,
And we waken at His summons
In that new and gladsome light,
O the wonder, O the rapture
As we greet the heav’nly day,
When the dawn eternal breaks upon our sight.


We’ll be there, we’ll be there,
On the resurrection morning we’ll be there;
We’ll be there, we’ll be there,
On the resurrection morning we’ll be there.

We shall see our blessèd Savior
And shall know Him in the skies
As He comes to take His children
Thro’ the gates of shining gold;
We shall hear the shouts of joy that
From unnumbered thousands rise,
As His beauty and His glory they behold.


We shall see the countless righteous
Gathering for their great reward,
We shall see the palms of victory
That the saints in gladness bring;
We shall hear the mighty chorus
To the Holy One adored,
As in robes of white they stand before their king.
