LO! He comes with clouds descending,
    Once for favoured sinners slain:
Thousand thousand saints attending
    Swell the triumph of His train:
    Jesus now shall ever reign.
2  Every eye shall now behold Him
    Robed in awesome majesty;
Those who set at nought 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:
    See the Day of God appear!
4  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!
5  Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
    High on Thine eternal throne:
Saviour, take the power and glory,
    Claim the kingdom for Thine own:
        O, come quickly,
    Everlasting God, come down!
