1
LO! He comes, from heav'n descending,
Once for guilty sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of His train.
Hallelujah!
Jesus come, and comes to reign.
2
See the Saviour, long expected,
Now in solemn pomp appear!
And His saints, by man rejected,
In His heav'nly glory share.
Hallelujah!
See the Son of God appear.
3
Israel's race shall then behold Him,
Full of grace and majesty;
Though they set at nought and sold Him,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
They in glory
Shall their great Messiah see.
4
Lord, the bride is with the Spirit
Calling on Thee now to come;
All the glory to inherit
And to sit upon Thy throne.
All creation
Travails, groans, till Thou shalt come.
5
Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
Highest honour Thine in heav'n;
Saviour, take the power glory,
All the nations God has giv'n.
Come, Lord Jesus!
Hallelujah! Come, Lord, come!
