Lo he comes, with clouds descending,

Once for fa-vored sin-ners slain,

Thousand, Thousand saints at-tend-ing,

Swell the tri-umph of his train,

Hal-le-lu-jah! Je-sus comes and come to reign.

Hal-le-lu-jah! Je-sus comes, and comes to reign.

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,

Shall the true Messiah see!

When the solemn trump has sounded,

Heaven and earth shall flee away;

All who hate him must, confounded,

Hear the summons of that day-

"Come to judgement! 

Come to judgement! come away!"

Yes, amen! let all adore thee

High on thine eternal throne!

Saviour take the power and glory,

Make thy righteous sentence known,

O come quickly-

Claim the kingdom for thine own!
