His lightnings flash, his thunders roll,
He's welcome to the faithful soul,
From heaven angelic voices sound,
See! the almighty Jesus crown'd!
Girt with omnipotence and grace,
While glory decks the Saviour's face.
Descending on his azure throne,
He claims the kingdoms for his own:
The kingdoms all obey his word,
And hail him their triumphant Lord.
Shout all ye people of the sky
Shout all ye saints of God most high:
The Lord who now his right obtains,
For ever, and for ever reigns.
The Father praise the Son adore,
The Spirit bless for evermore :
Salvation's glorious work is done,
We welcome thee, great Three in One,

Calvary.

WHAT were Sinai's awful wonders,

To the wonders of that day? When a voice like

many

thunders Shall be heard from heaven to say, Come to judgment !

Lo, the Judge is on his way.

GS

Lo, he comes ! the Lord from heaven:

He who bore the cross below;
All the power to him is given,
He appears in glory now:

Great his glory!
Every knee to him shall bow.
See, the nations all assembling,

Stand before the Saviour's throne;
Thousands at his presence trembling,
Hope extinguish'd, pleasure gone :

Calling, seeking
For relief, and finding none.
But his people, they who knew him,

And on earth his name confess'd,
Those the Saviour welcomes to him;
Those he makes, supremely bless'd:

Sweet their portion ; Their's an everlasting rest. 450 wwwminnan Helmsley. LO, he comes with clouds descending,

Once for favour'd sinners slain !
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of his train :

Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen.
Every eye shall then behold him

Rob’d in dreadful majesty;

They who set at nought and sold him,
Pierc'd and nail'd him to the tree;

Deeply wailing,
Shall the great Messiah see.
Every island, sea, and mountain,

Heaven and earth shall flee away;
All who bate him must, confounded,
Hear the trump proclaim the day;

Come to judgment !
Come to judgment! Come away!
Now redemption long expected,

See in solemn pomp appear!
All his saints, by men neglected,
Now shall meet him in the air;

Hallelujah!
See the day of God appear !
Answer thine own bride and Spirit,

Hasten, Lord, the general doom,
Bid us worlds above inherit;
Take thy pining exiles home ;

All creation
Travails, groans, and bids thee come.
