232 Our Lord Is Now Rejected
(THE CROWNING DAY )
El Nathan James McGranhan
 

<poem>

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.

Chorus 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. Chours

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. Chours

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. Chours A -men
