16222. Watch, For The Savior Is Coming

1 Watch, for the Sav­ior is com­ing;
Thus He has said be­fore:
Soon we shall hear Him, not know­ing,
Till He is at the door.

Jesus comes. Lo! He comes,
Oh, the aw­ful mo­ment!
Oh, pre­pare, for He comes,
Comes in fi­nal judg­ment.

2 Will you be rea­dy and wait­ing
For the great trum­pet’s sound?
When the lost world be will be shak­ing,
Where will you then be found? [Refrain]

3 Coming in pow­er and great glo­ry,
Gath’ring us home to dwell!
Sinners are ban­ished in mi­se­ry,
Down to a woe­ful hell. [Refrain]

4 Down to eter­nal de­struct­ion,
Oh, what an aw­ful sight!
Sent to your last des­ti­na­tion,
Where it’s for­ev­er night. [Refrain]

5 Sinners, ob­ey and take warn­ing,
Will you now make the choice?
Happy you’ll be in that morn­ing,
If you will hear His voice. [Refrain]

6 Up in the por­tals of glo­ry,
Gathered around the throne,
Singing sal­va­tion’s sweet sto­ry,
Safe in our joy­ful home. [Refrain]
