Words and music by Mabel Johnston Camp (1871-1937), 1913Key signature: B flat major (2 flats)Meter: 18.104.22.168. with RefrainPublic Domain1. Lift up your heads, pilgrims aweary, See day’s approach now crimson the sky; Night shadows flee, and your Beloved, Awaited with longing, at last draweth nigh.Refrain: He is coming again, He is coming again This very same Jesus, rejected of men; He is coming again, He is coming again, With pow’r and great glory, He is coming again!2. Dark was the night, sin warred against us; Heavy the load of sorrow we bore; But now we see signs of His coming; Our hearts glow within us, joy’s cup runneth o’er!3. O blessed hope! O blissful promise! Filling our hearts with rapture divine; O day of days! Hail Thy appearing! Thy transcendent glory forever shall shine.4. Even so, come, precious Lord Jesus; Creation waits redemption to see; Caught up in clouds, soon we shall meet Thee; O blessed assurance, forever with Thee!
