1. That glorious day is coming,
    The hour is hastening on;
    Its radiant light is nearing,
    Far brighter than the sun;
    In yonder clouds of heaven,
    The Saviour will appear,
    And gather all His chosen,
    To meet Him in the air.
    The saints, then all victorious
    Will go to meet their Lord;
    An earth both bright and glorious,
    Will then be their reward;
    And God Himself there reigning,
    Will wipe all tears away;
    Nor clouds nor night remaining,
    But one eternal day.
  2. O Christian, keep from sleeping,
    And let your love abound;
    Be watchful, prayerful, faithful,
    The trumpet soon will sound!
    O sinner, hear the warning!
    To Jesus quickly fly!
    Then you, in that blest morning,
    May meet Him in the sky!
