verse 1 G G7 C Am The marketplace is empty, No more traffic in the streets, D C G All the builders' tools are silent, No more time to harvest wheat; G G7 C Am Busy housewives cease their labors, In the courtroom no debate, D C G Work on earth is all suspended as the King comes thro' the gate. Chorus G G7 C Am O the King is coming, The King is coming! D C G I just heard the trumpets sounding, And now His face I see; G7 C Am O the King is coming, The King is coming! D G Praise God, He's coming for me! verse 2 G G7 C Am Happy faces line the hallways, Those whose lives have been redeemed, D C G Broken homes that He has mended, Those from prison He has freed; G G7 C Am Little children and the aged Hand in hand stand all aglow, D C G Who were crippled, broken, ruined, Clad in garments white as snow. verse 3 G G7 C Am I can hear the chariots rumble, I can see the marching throng, D C G The flurry of God's trumpets Spells the end of sin and wrong: G G7 C Am Regal robes are now unfolding, Heaven's grandstand's all in place, D C G Heaven's choir now assembled, Start to sing "Amazing Grace!"
