"Jesus Is Coming Soon" is a gospel song composed by R. E. Winsett, most likely in the earliest years of the 20th century.[1] The song was recorded by Blind Willie Johnson in gospel blues style in 1928, with an uncredited backing vocalist; who may have been Willie B. Harris, by some accounts his first wife, who is known to have appeared on some of his later recordings.[2][3] The song has become a country music standard, as evidenced by its recording history. It was awarded the title "Song of the Year" in 1969 at the 1st GMA Dove Awards.
