Thus saith the Church's Head,

The judge of quick and dead,

Quickly I come;

Let my redeemed pray,

O Lord make no delay, 

Thus all my saints shall say,

Lord quickly come.

Let them with one accord,

Shout their returning Lord;

Welcome him near:

Soon shall he come again,

Soon shall we with him reign,

Soon shall his foes be slain,

Soon he'll appear.

Earthquakes and storms attend,

Rocks, hills, and mountains rend;

Who shall abide?

Heavens melt and thunders roar,

Seas swell and rend the shore;

Hope sinks to rise no more;

Rocks cannot hide.

Jesus who died for sins,

Now in his glory reigns;

Claiming his own:

Father, I will, saith, he,

These thou hast given me,

Should all my glory see;

Sharing my throne.

Let the redeemed throng,

Make sovereign grace their song;

Mercy adore:

Ascribe salvation

To him who fills the throne,

And to the Lamb alone,

For evermore.
