Christ Returneth Lyrics & Chords

By Ira D. Sankey & James McGranahan

(C)It may be at morn, when the day is (G)awaking, (C)When sunlight through darkness and (D)shadow is (G)breaking (G)That (C)Jesus will come (G)in the fullness of (C)glory To (F)receive from the (C)world (G)“His (C)own.” Chorus (C)O Lord Jesus, how (F)long, how long Ere we shout the glad (C)song, (G)Christ (C)returneth! (G)Halle(C)lujah! (G)Hallelu(C)jah! (G)A(C)men. Halle(G)lujah! (G)A(C)men. 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.” While its hosts 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.” Oh, joy! oh, delight! should we go without dying, No sickness, no sadness, no dread and no crying. Caught up through the clouds with our Lord into glory, When Jesus receives “His own.”
