He com-eth! He com-eth! The a-ges are o'er!
Lo! the clouds have received him, he tar-ries no more,
Lo! the clouds have re-ceived him he tar-ries no more.
Lo! the times are ful-filled, and the voice of his word
Ush-ers in with its glo-ry the day of the Lord!
Usher in with its glo-ry the day of the Lord.

Th' Archangel! Th' Archangel! his grave-stirring word
Now he speaketh in thunder, the blast of his Lord!
O'er the kingdom of death, in the earth and the main,
Loud he shouteth the triumph Messiah shall gain.

Behold him! Behold him! in triumph we cry,
And behold the bright angels that shine in the sky!
Lo, he comes not as once, to a cheerless abode;
'T is the day of his triumph, the day of our God!
