#152: Lo! He Comes, with Clouds Descending

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


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.


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.


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!
