Heritage Singers1

This song was written and made popular during World War II – truly some trying and uncertain times.

This rendition by The Heritage Singers seems to capture the mood of the era when men were volunteering to avenge what took place at Pearl Harbor – the homes and loved ones they were leaving behind, not knowing if they’d ever return. As it was then, so it is today…troublesome times…but believers know there is hope in Jesus.

Jesus Is Coming Soon ©

Songwriter: Robert Emmett Winsett

As sung by The Heritage Singers

 

Troublesome times are here

Filling men’s hearts with fear

Freedom we all hold dear

Now is at stake

Humbling your hearts to God

Saves from the chastening rod

Seek the way pilgrims trod

Christians awake

Jesus is coming soon

Morning or night or noon

Many will meet their doom

Trumpets will sound

All of the dead shall rise

Righteous meet in the skies

Going where no one dies

Heavenward bound

Troubles will soon be o’er

Happy forever more

When we meet on that shore

Free from all care

Rising up in the sky

Telling this world goodbye

Homeward we then will fly

Glory to share

Jesus is coming soon

Morning or night or noon

Many will meet their doom

Trumpets will sound

All of the dead shall rise

Righteous meet in the skies

Going where no one dies

Heavenward bound…

Additional lyrics

[Love of so many cold

Losing their home of gold

This in God’s word is told

Evils abound

When these signs come to pass

Nearing the end at last

It will come very fast

Trumpets will sound

Jesus is coming soon

Morning or night or noon

Many will meet their doom

Trumpets will sound

All of the dead shall rise

Righteous meet in the skies

Going where no one dies

Heavenward bound

Going where no one dies

Heavenward bound…]
