He is coming! He is coming!
We can almost hear the sound
Of His footsteps at the threshold,
And our hearts with gladness bound.
All around us men are seeking,
Turning blind eyes to the light,
Longing, fearing, not yet daring
To escape from sin's dark night.
Yet the message is so simple,
'I will surely come again.'
'Tis the glad news of the Gospel
Ringing sweetly through earth's pain.
When He comes, may I be ready,
Watching, praying, working still,
Though He tarry, may I daily
Learn more perfectly His will.
