Lo! He Comes with Clouds Descending

  1. Lo! he comes with clouds descending,
    once for favored sinners 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. Ev’ry island, sea, and mountain,
    heav’n and earth, shall flee away;
    all who hate him must, confounded,
    hear the trump proclaim the day:
    Come to judgment! Come to judgment!
    Come to judgment, come away!
  4. Now Redemption, long expected,
    see in solemn pomp appear!
    All his saints, by man rejected,
    now shall meet him in the air.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    See the day of God appear!
  5. 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.
