Christ Returneth

Christ Returneth

H. L. Turner

Verse 1
It may be at morn, When the day is awaking
When sunlight thro’ darkness and shadow is breaking
That Jesus will come in the fullness of glory
To receive from the word “His own”


O lord Jesus how long, Ere we shout the glad song
Christ Returneth hallelujah hallelujah amen
Hallelujah Amen.

Verse 2
It may be at midday it may be at twilight
It may be, perchance, that the blackness of midnight
Will burst into light in the blaze of his glory
When Jesus receives “His own”


Verse 3
While it’s host cry hosanna, from heaven descending
With glorified saints and the angels attending
With grace on his brow, like a halo of glory
Will Jesus receive “His own”


Verse 4
Oh joy! oh delight! should we go without dying
No sickness, no sadness, no dread and no crying
Caught up thro’ the clouds with our lord into glory
When Jesus receives “His own”
