1328. Oh, glory to God! it is coming again

1 Oh, glory to God! it is coming again,
'Tis the glad jubilee of the children of men;
Then blow ye the trumpet, shout glory, and sing,
And join in the praises of Jesus the King.

Shout with the voice of triumph,
Soon shall the saints be free;
Glory to the Lord! hallelujah!
Hasten the jubilee.

2 'Tis the glad antitype of that day long ago
When the hosts of the Lord might not gather or sow;
When the minions of Israel from labor were free,
And the land was to rest in the glad jubilee. [Chorus]

3 Yes, gladder by far is that rest by and by,
When on wings like the eagle we mount to the sky;
We shall dwell evermore in that land of the blest,
In that grand jubilee, in that sabbath of rest. [Chorus]
