He Is Coming, #18

Lyrics

Verse 1
He is coming, the “Man of Sorrows,’
Now exalted on high;
He is coming with loud hosannas,
In the clouds of the sky.

Chorus
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
He is coming again;
And with joy we shall gather round Him,
At His coming to reign.

Verse 2
He is coming, our loving Saviour,
Blessed Lamb that was slain;
In the glory of God the Father,
On the earth He shall reign.

Verse 3
He is coming, our Lord and Master,
Our Redeemer and King;
We shall see Him in all His beauty,
And His praise we shall sing.

Verse 4
He shall gather His chosen people,
Who are called by His name;
And the ransomed of ev’ry nation,
For His own He shall claim.
