1 Lo! he comes, with clouds descending,
Once for favored sinners slain!
Thousand thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of his train:
God appears on earth to reign.
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.
3 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!
4 Yea! Amen! let all adore thee,
High on thine eternal throne!
Savior, take the power and glory:
Claim the kingdom for thine own!
O come quickly,
Everlasting God, come down.
