Lift your heads, ye friends of Je-sus,

Partners in his patience here;

Christ, to all be-liev-ers precious,

Lord of lords shall soon ap-pear.

Mark the to-kens, 

Mark the to-kens,

Mark the to-kens

Of his heaven-ly kingdom near.

Hear all nature's groans proclaiming

Nature's swift approaching doom;

War, and pestilence, and famine,

Signify the wrath to come;

Cleaves the centre,

Nations rush into the tomb.

Close behind the tribulation

Of the last tremendous days,

See the flaming Revelation!

See the universal blaze!

Earth and heaven

Melt before the judge's face.

Sun and moon are both confounded,

Darkened into endless night,

When with angel-host's surrounded,

In his Father's glory bright,

Beams the Saviour,

Shines the everlasting light.

See the stars from heaven falling!

Hark! on earth the doleful cry!

Men on rocks and mountains calling,

While the frowning judge draws nigh;

Hide us, hide us,

Rocks and mountains, from his eye!

With what different exclamation

Shall the saints his banner see!

By the monuments of his passion,

By the marks received for me!

All discern him,

All with shouts cry out-"'Tis He!"

Lo! 'tis He! our hearts desire

Come for his espoused below;

Come to join us with the choir,

Come to make our joys o'erflow:

Palms of victory,

Crowns of glory to bestow."

Yes, the prize shall sure be given;

We his open face shall see:

Love, the earnest of our heaven,

Love our full reward shall be,

Love shall crown us

Kings through all eternity.
