Verse 1
Lo! He comes with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending;
Swell the triumph of His train:
God appears on earth to reign.

Verse 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.

Verse 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 judgement!
Come to judgement! come away!

Verse 4
Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear:
All His saints, by men rejected
Now shall meet Him in the air:
See the day of God appear.
