GET READY TO WELCOME THE KING
A servant of Jesus am I,
To you this message I bring:
The night is far spent, the day dawns at length; Get ready to welcome the King!
Get ready to welcome the King,
Get ready to welcome the King;
The night is far spent, the day dawns at length, Get ready to welcome the King!
Dark evil has long held its sway;
Its end is coming and near,
For Jesus, God’s Son, shall come to His throne, The Savior to sinners so dear.
All power to Jesus is giv’n,
Ascended to Heav’n again;
He humbled Himself to die on the cross, But soon He is coming to reign.
Words:Fannie Allen, 1907
JESUS THE KING IS COMING
Jesus the King is coming
Lo, in the eastern sky,
Signs of approaching glory; Surely redemption draweth nigh.
Coming again for me;
Soon I shall see my Savior, Like Him I then shall be.
Jesus is quickly coming;
‘Twill not be very long
Ere we shall hail our bridegroom With all the bright, angelic throng.
Then all who sleep in Jesus, Waking shall upward rise;
We who remain, together
With them caught up to paradise.
O what a glorious prospect! O what a hope divine!
Thru the eternal ages
Jesus will be forever mine.
Heir to the life immortal, Joint ruler on His throne, Partaker of His glory, Jesus will be my very own.
Glory to God the Father, Glory to Christ the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit
For our redemption freely won.
Thoro Harris, 1920.
