When He Comes Again

Words & Music by Darby Hughes
(except for ending from “Hallelujah, What a Savior” by Philip P. Bliss)
CCLI Song Number 7159066


More than watchmen waiting for the morning
Earnestly we wait upon the Lord
More than all creation’s eager longing,
O, we long to see that day

When every sin that clings to us so closely,
Every foe that wars against our souls,
And every bitter tear that clouds out glory’s light
Will all be swept away

Chorus: When He comes again
In the glory of His kingdom
We will all be changed
When we see Him as He is
O to be found faithful to the end
When He comes again

The sky will split, the dead will rise immortal
In the clouds will shine the Son of Man
Conq’ring with the sword of His eternal truth
And making all things new


Now’s the time to waken from our sleeping
The night of sin is spent and day is near
Seizing what’s remaining of our fleeting years
We love and labor on


When he comes, our glorious King
All his ransomed home to bring
Then anew this song we’ll sing
Hallelujah, what a Savior
