Lo! He Comes

Lo He Comes

Lo! He comes with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of His train!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus comes, and comes to reign.

Ev’ry 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.

When the solemn trump has sounded,
Heav’n and earth shall flee away;
All who hate Him must, confounded,
Hear the summons of that day -
Come to judgement! Come to judgement! Come to judgement!
Come to judgement, come away!

Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear!
All His saints, by men rejected,
Now shall meet Him in the air;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
See the day of God appear!

Yea, Amen! Let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own!
Oh, come quickly! Oh, come quickly! Oh, come quickly!
Hallelujah! Come, Lord, come!

J. Cennick and C. Wesley
