Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen (Revelation 1:7).
Behold He Comes is another song I heard many times in my youth. In fact, I remember from about 9 or 10 years old that Dr. J. R. Faulkner led the entire Highland Park Baptist Church congregation in singing this song every service. They continued to sing it after I left Chattanooga and until Dr. Lee Roberson resigned as pastor.
Behold He Comes is a short, but might chorus. It starts out with bass voices singing “Behold He comes” with each octave repeating the phrase until the song builds to a powerful next line with all octaves in unison singing: And every eye shall see him; Friend will you be ready. And lastly, all the voices sang triumphantly “When Jesus Comes!”
I have not heard the chorus in years but mentally I can hear it without any loss of note or word. Eleanor S. Murray wrote the lyrics and music in 1956 (copyright by Singspiration). I have found a recoding on YouTube of this great song from the 1970s performed by 1600 singing men at Tennessee Temple.
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words (1 Thes 4:13-18)
