HIS SECOND COMING
4 Thou art coming, we are waiting
With a hope that cannot fail; Asking not the day or hour, Resting on Thy word of power,
Anchored safe within the veil. Time appointed may be long,
But the vision must be sure; Certainly shall make us strong,
Joyful patience can endure.
5 O the joy to see Thee reigning,
Thee, our own beloved Lord! Every tongue Thy name confessing, Worship, honor, glory, blessing
Brought to Thee with one accord; Thee, our Master, and our Friend,
Vindicated and enthroned; Unto earth's remotest end
Glorified, adored, and owned!
Frances R. Havergal

2 Jesus comes again in mercy,
When our hearts are bowed with care; Jesus comes again in answer
To an earnest, heart-felt prayer; Alleluia!
Comes to save us from despair.
4 Jesus comes in joy and sorrow, Shares alike our hopes and fears;
Jesus comes, whate'er befalls us,
Glads our hearts, and dries our tears;
Alleluia! Cheering e'en our failing years.
3 Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing, Bringing news of sins forgiven;
Jesus comes in sounds of gladness, Leading souls redeemed to heaven;
Alleluia! Now the gate of death is riven.
5 Jesus comes on clouds triumphant, When the heavens shall pass away;
Jesus comes again in glory; Let us then our homage pay,
Ever singing, Till the dawn of endless day.
Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1866
