Hymn/Song Information

From the wild and scorching desert




Refrain.
Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,


Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,



From the wild and scorching desert,
Africís sons awaked from sleep;
Jesusí love has drawn and won them,
At His cross they bow and weep.

Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,



From the fields and crowded cities,
China gathers to His feet;
In His love Shemís gentle children,
Now have found a safe retreat.

Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,



From the Indus, and the Ganges,
Steady flows the living stream,
To loveís ocean, to His bosom,
Calvary their wondíring theme.

Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,



From the steppes of Russia dreary,
From Slavoniaís scattered lands,
They are yielding soul and spirit
Into Jesusí loving hands.

Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,



From the frozen realms of midnight,
Over many a weary mile,
To exchange their soulís long winter
For the summer of His smile.

Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,



All to meet in plains of glory,
All to sing His praises sweet;
What a chorus, what a meeting,
With the family complete!

Coming, coming, yes they are,
Coming, coming from afar,
