1.  Thou art coming, O my Saviour,

Thou art coming, O my King,

In Thy beauty all resplendent;

In Thy glory all transcendent;

Well may we rejoice and sing:

Coming! in the opening east

Herald brightness slowly swells;

Coming! O my glorious Priest,

Hear we not Thy golden bells?

2.  Thou art coming, Thou art coming;

We shall meet Thee on Thy way,

We shall see Thee, we shall know Thee,

We shall bless Thee, we shall show Thee

All our hearts could never say:

What an anthem that will be,

Ringing out our love to Thee,

Pouring out our rapture sweet

At Thine own all-glorious feet!

3.  O the joy to see Thee reigning,

Thee, my own beloved Lord!

Every tongue Thy Name confessing,

Worship, honor, glory, blessing

Brought to Thee with glad accord;

Thee, my Master and my Friend,

Vindicated and enthroned;

Unto earth’s remotest end

Glorified, adored, and owned.

Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending   2 comments

1.  Lo, he comes with clouds descending,

Once for favored sinners slain;

Thousand, thousand saints attending

Swell the triumph of his train;

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

God appears on earth to reign,

God appears on earth to reign.

2.  Every eye shall now behold him,

Robed in dreadful majesty;

Those who set at naught and sold him,

Pierced and nailed him to the tree,

Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing,

Shall the true Messiah see,

Shall the true Messiah see.

3.  The dear tokens of his passion

Still his dazzling body bears;

Cause of endless exultation

To his ransomed worshipers;

With what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture,

Gaze we on those glorious scars!

Gaze we on those glorious scars!

4.  Yea, Amen! Let all adore thee,

High on thy eternal throne;

Savior, take the power and glory,

Claim the kingdom for thine own;

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Everlasting God, come down!

Everlasting God, come down!
