How Great the Day When Christ Shall Come
How great the day when Christ shall come:
When ev’ry eye shall see
The King, our God, in might return
To rule eternally.
The righteous saints are lifted up;
The faithful dead arise.
Christ’s celebration fills the earth,
And angels fill the sky.
How blessed the day of holiness
When sin no more is found,
When all shall live in righteousness,
And Satan shall be bound.
The Light of Christ shall fill the earth.
All men shall know His way.
Oh, with one tongue we’ll praise God’s Son
And all His laws obey.
Then, in the day of Jubilee,
All Israel is restored!
Jerusalem shall dwell in peace
And worship Christ, the Lord.
All Zion’s gates are opened wide;
Her children dance and play.
Her sick and lame are whole again.
Her tears are wiped away.
Oh, holy, holy is our God.
salvation is His name.
Let ev’ry knee before Him bow
And ev’ry tongue exclaim
That Jesus Christ has overcome
And as our Lord does reign.
Oh, may our voice in praise rejoice
Till Jesus comes again.
