Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.@Psalm 149:2

Charles B. Hilton, 1918.

Roger M. Hickman (🔊 pdf nwc).

When the King shall come at the end of days,
All the saints of our God will be welcomed home;
’Round the throne they will gather to sing His praise,
And will never again from His palace roam.

Refrain

When the King shall come, when the King shall come,
Songs of joy will resound from the east and west,
And the saved will rejoice in that land of rest,
When the King shall come, when the King shall come;
There’ll be glory when the King shall come.

When the King shall come, will He welcome you?
Will He give you a place with the saints who reign?
Or when judged by the King in the last review,
Will you pass to the realms of eternal pain?

Refrain

When the King shall come with a shout at dawn,
Earth and stars will dissolve in a fervent heat;
Jeweled crowns, from the monarchs of earth withdrawn,
Will be cast with hosannas at Jesus’ feet.
