When on clouds of glory
Jesus comes again,
Comes with shining angels,
Evermore to reign;
Will we greet His triumph
With a song of praise?
Or in silent rapture
On His beauty gaze?


On the Mount of Olives,
When His feet shall rest,
Where shall we be numbered, you and I?
Called among the ransomed,
Known among the blest?
Shall we there be numbered, you and I?

When the great archangel
Sounds the trumpet clear,
So from earth and ocean
All the dead shall hear,
Will our brows, illumined,
Bear the saving name?
Will we meet King Jesus
With a glad acclaim?


When the sky above us,
On that final day,
When the scenes around us
Pass in flame away;
Then will Jesus claim us
As His very own?
Then will we be standing,
Saved, before His throne?
