Lyrics

Verse 1
Lo! he comes, with clouds descending,
Once for favored sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of his train;
Hallelujah!
God appears on earth to reign.

Verse 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,
Shall the true Messiah see.

Verse 3
All the tokens of his passion
Still his dazzling body bears:
Cause of endless exultation
To his ransomed worshippers;
With what rapture
Gaze we on those glorious scars.

Verse 4
Yea, Amen! let all adore thee,
High on thine eternal throne;
Savior, take the power and glory;
Make thy righteous sentence known:
Jah! Jehovah!
Claim the kingdom for thine own.
