There is a King of glo-ry

Ere long on earth to rise,

Sung in pro-phetic sto-ry,

De-scending from the skies;

The babe of Bethle-hem, 'tis He,

It is the man of Cal-va-ry,

Not crowned with thorns and gory,

But crowned with glo-ry now!

Not crowned with thorns to-day,

Not mocked and led a-way,

But crowned with eve-er-last-ing go--ry now.

He cometh, cometh speedy,

To save his suffering saints,

Saints groaning, waiting, ready,

And endeth their complaints:

With joy they meet him in the air,

And shout the swelling triumph there:

No longer poor and needy,

But crowned with glory now,

Not one's reviled to-day!

None stumble in the way-

All crowned with everlasting glory now.

O tears, and sin, and sighing,

Now let your prisoner go,

Discharged from pain and dying

And from a world of woe;

I go to Christ-He comes to me-

We meet in bright eternity-

On clouds of glory now,

Victorious in his wars,

Full many a palm he bears,

And crowns of everlasting glory now!

O what are tribulation,

And all the ills I bear,

Compared with this salvation,

And all the glory there?

Behold, a city fair and high,

Bright Capital of earth and sky,

That dureth with duration,

All filled with glory now!

The armies of His grace,

Triumphant reach the place-

'Tis glory, everlasting glory, now!

There every sight that pleases,

There every sound that cheers,

There sweet immortal breezes,

Inspire the palmy years;

There all the just join in a band,

From every age, from every land,

While o'er them reigns king Jesus,

With crowns of glory now!

The people of His grace,

Have reached the heavenly place-

'T is glory, everlasting glory, now!
