    Verse 1
    Jesus is coming with joy in the sky
    Oh happy day! oh, happy day!
    Then all who love Him shall heaven-ward fly:
    Oh happy day! happy day!

    Upward shall fly to the Lord in the air,
    Together with Jesus we all shall be there,
    Far from the earth and from sorrow and care:
    Oh happy day! happy day!

    verse 2
    Parents and children shall then again meet;
    Oh happy day! oh happy day!
    Sisters and brothers oh, it will be sweet!
    Oh happy day! happy day!

    We missed them on earth, to Jesus they went;
    We love them as ever their absence lament
    Soon we shall meet them and then be content,
    Oh happy day! happy day!

    verse 3
    Are we all ready, should Jesus now call?
    Oh happy day! oh happy day!
    Would each one answer, the great and the small?
    Oh happy day! happy day!

    We long to rise up and with thee to be,
    Thy face, blessed Jesus Our Saviour to see
    Would you then, dear children, sing sweetly with me?
    Oh happy day! happy day!

    verse 4
    Some would stay weeping unable to sing,
    Oh happy day! oh happy day!
    Yet all may rejoice and their glad praises bring;
    Oh happy day! happy day!

    For Jesus still waits, He tarries that we
    May trust in His name, and thus ready may be,
    When brightly beaming, His glory we see:
    Oh happy day! happy day!
