#152: Lo! He Comes, with Clouds Descending

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Lo! He comes, with clouds descending,

Once for our salvation slain;

Thousand thousand saints attending,

Swell the triumph of His train:

Alleluia! alleluia!

God appears on earth to reign.

2

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,

Shall the true Messiah see.

3

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,

High on Thine eternal throne;

Savior, take the pow’r and glory,

Claim the kingdom for Thine own:

O come quickly, O come quickly,

Alleluia! come, Lord, come!
