12462. Jesus Will Return

1 Have you known the wondrous story,
Jesus’ coming draweth near?
And the Lord of life and glory,
On the cloud will soon appear?

This Jesus, this same Jesus,
Who once died for men,
Will return again,
Forever and forever
As the King of kings
On this earth to reign.

2 For the signs are fast fulfilling
In the earth, the sea, the sky,
And with hope our hearts are thrilling—
Our redemption draweth nigh. [Refrain]

3 Then the loved whom death had parted,
On that resurrection day
Meet, no longer broken hearted—
Tears have all been wiped away. [Refrain]

4 O we long for Thine appearing!
How our hearts within us burn,
As we know the hour is nearing,
When the Savior will return. [Refrain]
