1. Weary hands will cease from labor,
Folded, they at rest will lie,
For we have a burden bearer,
And His coming draweth nigh.

Refrain
Yes, the weary night is passing,
Dawn is breaking in the sky;
We shall hail the glad tomorrow,
For His coming draweth nigh.

2. Sorrow will not last forever,
Tears not always dim the eye;
Jesus is our consolation,
And His coming draweth nigh. [Refrain]

3. Pain is not our lasting portion,
Balm descendeth from on high,
For we have a great Physician,
And His coming draweth nigh. [Refrain]

4. Death is not to be eternal,
Tho’ we all are doomed to die;
Jesus is the resurrection,
And His coming draweth nigh. [Refrain]

Late 19th Century Currently, our only data on Jones is indirect: E. M. Douthit, who wrote the music for some of Jones’ lyrics, lived in Austin, Texas, in 1899, so perhaps Jones was from that area also. --www.hymntime.com/tch Go to person page >
