For Your coming in the clouds.
   Chorus:
          A     A/G  D/F♯    G    A
   With a shout the  trumpet will sound, 
   A/G     D/F♯         G       B7/F♯   Em
   And the dead will be raised   to     life, 
       G        D/A         A7  D
   And we shall meet Him in the air!
Verse 2:
In that day
Death is swallowed up in victory;
In that day
Sin and death shall be no more.

LORD, WE WAIT for the day of Your appearing;
Lord, we wait for your coming in the clouds.

With a shout the trumpet will sound,
And the dead will be raised to life,
And we shall meet Him in the air!

In that day death is swallowed up in victory;
In that day sin and death will be no more.

Now in part - we see shadows of His glory;
Then in full - we shall see Him face to face!
