Christ Returneth  Misc. Gospel

[C]It may be at morn, when the day is [G7]awakening,
[C]When sunlight through darkness and [D]shadow is [G]breaking
[G7]That [C]Jesus will come [G]in the fullness of [C]glory
To [F]receive from the [C]world “[G7]His [C]own.”

[C]O Lord Jesus, how [F]long, how long
Ere we shout the glad [C]song,
[G]Christ re[C]turneth! [G]Halle[C]lujah!
Hal[G]lelu[C]jah! [G7]Ame[C]n. Halle[G]lujah! [G7]Ame[C]n.

It may be at midday, it may be at twilight,
It may be, perchance, that the blackness of midnight
Will burst into light in the blaze of His glory,
When Jesus receives “His own.”


While its hosts cry Hosanna, from heaven descending,
With glorified saints and the angels attending,
With grace on His brow, like a halo of glory,
Will Jesus receive “His own.”


Oh, joy! oh, delight! should we go without dying,
No sickness, no sadness, no dread and no crying.
Caught up through the clouds with our Lord into glory,
When Jesus receives “His own.”
