I need this for my boss. He thinks I can find anything! I can't find the song with this line "Jesus is coming soon though we know not when Jesus is coming again."
It's probably a really old Pentecostal hymn.  Because my boss is an older Pentecostal man.  He is just lovely and I would like to help him.  this is even plaguing his sleep.

Thank you.  Scarlett77

Could this be it?

1) Someday when this age has run the course that God intended,
Ancient Bible prophecy will surely be fulfilled.
As the Saviour left the earth that day when He ascended;
So He’ll come again the Father has willed.

* Jesus is coming, though we know not when.
Yes, He is coming, Jesus is coming again.

2) O it is a blessed hope to those who know the Saviour,
Blessed in the many joys that it will usher in;
Purifying hope that has the power to change behaviour;
Keeping from the world’s defilement and sin.

* Jesus is coming, though we know not when.
Yes, He is coming, Jesus is coming again.

3) Many people doubt that Jesus really is returning,
“Where’s the promise of His coming?” mockingly they cry; 
After He has come and judgment fires around are burning,
They will know the truth that now they deny.

* Jesus is coming, though we know not when.
Yes, He is coming, Jesus is coming again.

Yes!  That's it!  Do we know the author?

I want to say it was John W Peterson, or maybe one of the Wyrtzens?

We had a songbook for youth in the mid-70's and this was one of the songs in it. I don't remember if it was a Word of Life (Schroon Lake, NY) or Singspiration (Zondervan, maybe) publication. Regardless, a great song, easy to learn and easy to sing, too.

It's definitely John W. Peterson.

there was a quartet that sung this song, do you remember who they were, and do you have  the tune for it?

The song is included as a second theme in the musical 'Jesus is Coming ' by John W. Peterson. You may be able to get it from Amazon.com or www.johnwpetersonmusic.com. The original recording is on LP vinyl but you can ask if they have a CD version in case you need it.
