There Are Many Mansions Yonder


There are many mansions yonder,
In the Father’s house on high,
Where the Savior now is gone to prepare
“A place” for those He purchased,
In the home beyond the sky,
And the coming of the Savior draweth near.

Chorus:
O the coming of the Savior draweth near,
O the coming of the Savior draweth near,
Be thou ready, O my soul, for the trumpet soon may roll,
And the Lord “in His glory” shall appear.

I am waiting for the Savior,
Who has tarried now so long;
‘Tis the hope that has kept me year by year.
In the midst of ev’ry conflict
I can raise a joyful song,
For the coming of the Savior draweth near. [Chorus]

Tho’ the darkness gathers round me,
Yet the night is far advanced,
And soon will the Morning Star appear;
Then the darkness all will vanish.
And the glory dawn at morn,
For the coming of the Savior draweth near. [Chorus]

When the Lord shall come in power,
And the saints in glory shine,
Say, sinner, have you nothing then to fear?
If you’re not in Christ you’ll perish,
When to earth He comes again,
For with vengeance to the world He will appear! [Chorus]
