The Second Coming of Christ. Rev. 1. 7

J. Cennick, C. Wesley and M. Madan           8.7.4.

1
Lo! he comes, with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain,
Thousand, thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of his train,
And with pleasure,
Magnify his awful name!

2
Every eye shall now behold him,
Robed in dreadful majesty;
Those who set at nought and sold him,
Pierced and nailed him to the tree,
Deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

3
Every island, sea, and mountain –
Heaven and earth, shall flee away;
All who hate him must, confounded,
Hear the trump proclaim the day;
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!
Hallelujah!
See the day of God appear!
