C.M.


1
THY Lord is coming; lift your heads!
Ye ransomed saints, rejoice!
Soon shall we meet Him in the air,
And answer to His voice.
2
The Lord is coming; faith gives place
To actuality,
This mortal swallowed up by life
In immortality.
3
The Lord is coming; what delight
Our hearts anticipate!
The glory of that blessèd sight
We eagerly await.
4
Yea, Lord, Thou comest - hope now blest!
Thy call we soon shall hear;
And then in glory shall Thy bride
With Thee, the King, appear.

G. Gustafsson, fr. Swedish
