He Is Coming Again
Words and Music by Mabel Johnston Camp

John 14:3
"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

          Lift up your heads pilgrims aweary,
          See day's approach now crimson the sky;
          Night shadows flee, and your Beloved,
          Awaited with longing at last draweth nigh.

            Chorus
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            The very same Jesus, rejected of men;
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            With pow'r and great glory,
            He is coming again.

          Dark was the night, sin warred against us;
          Heavy the load of sorrow we bore;
          But now we see signs of His coming;
          Our hearts glow within us joy's cup runneth o'er!

            Chorus
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            The very same Jesus, rejected of men;
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            With pow'r and great glory,
            He is coming again.

          O blessed hope!  O blissful promise!
          Filling our hearts with rapture divine;
          O day of days!  Hail Thy appearing!
          Thy transcendent glory forever shall shine.

            Chorus
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            The very same Jesus, rejected of men;
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            With pow'r and great glory,
            He is coming again.

          Even so, come Prescious Lord Jesus;
          Creation waits redemption to see;
          Caught up in clouds, soon we shall meet Thee;
          O blessed aurrance forever with Thee!

            Chorus
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            The very same Jesus, rejected of men;
            He is coming again, He is coming again,
            With pow'r and great glory,
            He is coming again.
