1 I am watching for the coming
Of my Savior and my king,
What a joyous happy meeting that will be!
I am waiting every day to
Hear the trumpet’s awful ring,
When the Son of Man shall come in majesty.

Refrain:
He is coming, He is coming,
He is coming soon to catch away His bride;
He is coming, He is coming,
O how happy will my place be at His side!

2 When the fig trees’ leaf appears,
We know that summer draweth nigh,
From the bondage of the winter it is free;
As the lightning shineth forth
Across the dark and stormy sky,
So the coming of the Son of Man shall be. [Refrain]

3 I am ready now to meet Him,
For my lamp is burning bright,
From all earthly ties and bondage I am free;
He may be here ere the morning,
Yes, perhaps before the night,
Then forever with the Savior I shall be. [Refrain]
