232 Our Lord Is Now Rejected
El Nathan James McGranhan
  1. Our Lord is now re - ject - ed,
    And by the world dis-owned,
    By the man - y still ne - glect - ed,
    And by the few en-throned,
    But soon he'll come in glo - ry,
    The hour is draw ing nigh,
    For the crown - ing day is com - ing by and by.

    O the crown- ing day is com- ing, Is com-ing by and by,
    When our Lord shall come in 'pow - er,' and 'glo - ry' from on high.
    glo - rious sight will glad - den, Each wait-ing, watch - ful eye,
    In the crown-ing day that's com- ing by and by.

  2. The heavens shall glow with splen - dor,
    But bright - er far than they
    The saints shall shine in glo - ry,
    As Christ shall them ar - ray,
    The beau - ty of the Sav - iour,
    Shall daz - zle ev - ery eye,
    In the crown - ing day that's com - ing by and by.
  3. Our pain shall then be o - ver,
    We'll sin and sigh no more,
    Be - hind us all of sor - row,
    And naught but joy be fore,
    A joy in our Re - deem - er,
    As we to him are nigh,
    In the crown - ing day that's com - ing by and by.
  4. Let all that look for, has - ten
    The com - ing joy - ful day,
    By ear - nest con - se - era - tion,
    To walk the nar - row way,
    By gath-ering in the lost ones,
    For whom our Lord did die,
    For the crown - ing day that's com ing by and by.
