1 Thou art coming, O my Saviour!
Thou art coming, O my King!
In Thy beauty all resplendent,
In Thy glory all transcendent;
Well may we rejoice and sing;
Coming: in the opening east
Herald brightness slowly swells;
Coming: O Thou glorious Priest,
Hear we not Thy golden bells?
2 Thou art coming, Thou art coming;
We shall meet Thee on Thy way;
We shall see Thee, we shall know Thee,
We shall bless Thee, we shall show Thee
All our hearts could never say;
What an anthem that will be,
Music rapturously sweet,
Pouring out our love to Thee
At Thine own all-glorious feet.
3 Thou art coming; at Thy table
We are witnesses for this;
While remembering hearts Thou meetest
In communion clearest, sweetest,
Earnest of our coming bliss;
Showing not Thy death alone,
And Thy love exceeding great,
But Thy coming, and Thy throne,
All for which we long and wait.
4 Thou art coming; we are waiting
With a hope that cannot fail;
Asking not the day or hour,
Resting on Thy word of power,
Anchored safe within the veil.
Time appointed may be long,
But the vision must be sure;
Certainty shall make us strong,
Joyful patience can endure.
5 Oh, the joy to see Thee reigning,
Thee, our own belovèd Lord!
Every tongue Thy Name confessing,
Worship, honor, glory, blessing
Brought to Thee with one accord;
Thee, our Master and our Friend,
Vindicated and enthroned,
Unto earth's remotest end
Glorified, adored, and owned!

Thou art coming, O my Saviour. Frances B. Havergal. [Advent.] Written at Winterdyne, Nov. 16, 1873. First printed in the Rock newspaper, 1873, and then as one of Parlane's leaflets, 1874; her Under the Surface, 1874; and Life Mosaic, 1879. It is one of the most popular of Miss Havergal's hymns. Sometimes it is divided, when Pt. ii. begins with Thou art coming; at Thy Table." Miss Havergal's tune St. Paul was written to this hymn; but she preferred to hear it sung to Dr. Monk's tune Advent, as in Hymns Ancient & Modern. [HAV. MSS.]
