1 We have reached an awful era in the onward flight of years,
While the nations are in slumber, crying “peace” ’mid drowning fears;

We shall see the Savior coming,
Coming in the glory of His Father’s throne;
In that sweet and golden morning,

2 Every human structure ’round us crumbles from the mighty shock,
While we stand upon the summit of the everlasting Rock;
Mighty heralds, swiftly flying, sound the news from shore to shore,
The Bridegroom is returning, and already at the door. [Refrain]
3 Oh, our glorious King is coming from His country far away,
For He has received a kingdom that shall stand eternally;
And the saints, in all the greatness and the glory of His reign,
Shall rise with songs of triumph and extol His holy name. [Refrain]
