157. Christ the Lord Is Coming

Christ the Lord is coming,
Coming very soon,
Suddenly some morning,
Eve, or night, or noon.
Quickly, in a moment,
Saints shall quit the earth;
See Him in His beauty,
Glory, grace and worth.
Then—oh, wondrous blessing!
They shall be like Him;
Nevermore have sorrow,
Ever free from sin.
Then with Him in glory
Brightly they shall shine;
Know His love more fully—
Love so true, divine!
