When He Cometh Lyrics

1 When He cometh, when He cometh
To make up His jewels,
All His jewels, precious jewels,
His loved and His own:

Like the stars of the morning,
His bright crown adorning,
They shall shine in their beauty,
Bright gems for His crown.

2 He will gather, He will gather
The gems for His kingdom;
All the pure ones, all the bright ones,
His loved and His own. [Refrain]

3 Little children, little children,
Who love their Redeemer,
Are the jewels, precious jewels,
His loved and His own. [Refrain]

When He Cometh Hymn Story

“When he cometh” is a children’s hymn that was composed in 1856 by Reverend William Orcutt Cushing.

It talks about Christ second coming as the time he will come to get his precious jewels, i.e. his children. It is a song that has stood the test of time and continues to be used in our current time.

Reverend William Orcutt Cushing was born at Hingham, Massachusetts. He was a minister in the Christian Church, an Orthodox Christian denomination.

He served mainly in the New York area till his death. He wrote most of his hymns after developing a creeping paralysis that led to him losing his voice.

He wrote over three hundred songs during his lifetime.

He mainly focused on the text. The music to his songs was done by other well-known Christian composers of his time such as, Reverend Robert Lowry, Ira D Sankey, etc.

He died in 1902.

Cushing’s other hymns include, “Ring the Bells of Heaven,” “We are Waiting, We are Watching,” ” Hiding in Thee,” “Do They Know?” “There’ll Be No Dark Valley,” “When Jesus Comes,” “Down in the Valley,” “Beautiful Valley of Eden,” “I am Waiting by the River,” “The Name of Jesus,” “Fair is the Morning Land,” “Gathering Home to the Silent Shore,” “O Safe to the Rock That Is Higher Than I.”
