Our Saviour Will Come Again From On High

Cat. #0920 (MFH #493) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on September 16, 1969

VERSE 1
Our Saviour will come again from on high
With angels of life desend from th sky
For when He was here and dwelled among men
Th promise He left, I'm comin' again

CHOURS:
O, joyful thought He's comin' again
He's coming to earth an' glory to reign
Rejoice an' be glad we childring of men
For Jesus, our Lord is coming again

VERSE 2
He's comin' again to comfort His own
An' give them a place around th white throne
An' unto His saints when Jesus shall come
He'll bring th reward for what you have done

VERSE 3
He's comin' again, O, sinners, prepare
He's coming to earth in glory to share
Repent of your sins, believe in his word
An' be ready to meet -- --- --- -- -- --
