OUR LORD'S SECOND COMING. 7 And by the love that brought Thee here, i 5 Go, tyrants ! to the rocks complain; And by the cross, and by the grave,
Go, seek the mountain's cleft in vain; Give perfect love for conscious fear,
But faith, victorious o'er the tomb, And in the day of judgment save.
Shall sing for joy, “The Lord is come !" 8 And lead us on while here we stray, And make us love our heavenly home; | 50.
Tune-Holywood, 342. 8,7,8,7,4,7. Till from our hearts we love to say,
“Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall “Even so, Lord Jesus, quickly come.”

110! He comes, with clouds descending, Tune-Old Saxony, 32. L.M. 1 Once for favoured sinners slain; “And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a
Thousand thousand saints attending, cloud, with power and great glory."
Swell the triumph of His train: 1 MHE Lord will come, the earth shall quake,
Halleluiah! 1 The hills their fixed seat forsake,
God appears on earth to reign.
2 Every eye shall now behold Him
Robed in dreadful majesty; 2 The Lord will come; but not the same
Those who set at naught and sold Him, As once in lowly form He came,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree, A silent Lamb to slaughter led,
Deeply wailing, The bruised, the suffering, and the dead.
Shall the true Messiah see. 3 The Lord will come, a dreadful form,
3 Every island, sea, and mountain, With wreath of flame and robe of storm,
Heaven and earth shall flee away; On cherub wings and wings of wind,
All who hate Him must, confounded, Appointed Judge of humankind.
Hear the trump proclaim the day;
Come to judgment! 4 Can this be He who wont to stray
Come to judgment, come away!
OUR LORD'S SECOND COMING.
4 With that blessed hope before us,
Let no harp remain unstrung;
Let the mighty advent-chorus
Onward roll from tongue to tongue: 5 Yea, Amen, let all adore Thee,
Christ is coming!
Come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
Tune-Dies Irae, 362. 8,8,8.
“ The great and terrible day of the Lord.” Everlasting God, come down !

Tune--Advent, 332, 8,7,8,7,4,7. Heaven and earth in ashes burning ! “Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
2 O what fear man's bosom rendeth, 1 CHRIST is coming! let creation
When from heaven the Judge descendeth,
On whose sentence all dependeth !
3 Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth, Hope restore, and faith increase:
Through earth’s sepulchres it ringeth,
All before the throne it bringeth.
4 Death is struck, and nature quaking, 2 Earth can now but tell the story
All creation is awaking,
To its Judge an answer making.
5 Lo, the Book, exactly worded,
Wherein all hath been recorded !
Thence shall judgment be awarded. 3 Long Thine exiles have been pining,
6 When the Judge His seat attaineth,
And each hidden deed arraigneth,
Nothing unavenged remaineth.
7 What shall I, frail man, be pleading,
Who for me be interceding,
When the just are mercy needing ?
8 King of majesty tremendous, Who dost free salvation send us,
Fount of pity, then befriend us ! 9 Think, good Jesus, my salvation Caused Thy wondrous incarnation;
Leave me not to reprobation. 10 Faint and weary Thou hast sought me,
On the cross of suffering bought me;
Shall such grace be vainly brought me ? 11 Righteous Judge ! for sin's pollution
Grant Thy gift of absolution,
Ere that day of retribution. 12 Guilty, now I pour my moaning,
All my shame with anguish owning;
Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groaning ! 13 Thou the sinful woman savedst;
Thou the dying thief forgavest;
14 Worthless are my prayers and sighing,
Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,
Rescue me from fires undying. 15 With Thy favoured sheep O place me,
Nor among the goats abase me;
But to Thy right hand upraise me. 16 While the wicked are confounded,
Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
Call me with Thy saints surrounded. 17 Low I kneel, with heart-submission;
See, like ashes, my contrition;
Help me in my last condition. 18 Ah, that day of tears and mourning!
From the dust of earth returning,
Man for judgment must prepare him; 19 Spare, O God, in mercy spare him!
Lord, all-pitying, Jesus blest,
HYMNS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. 53. Tune-Langton, 117.
2 But when He came the second time, “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of
He came in power and love; a rushing mighty wind."
Softer than gale at morning prime 1 WHEN God of old came down from heaven, Hovered His holy Dove.
" In power and wrath He came; Before His feet the clouds were riven,
3 The fires that rushed on Sinai down
Now gently light, a glorious crown,
3 Anoint and cheer our soiled face On every sainted head.
With the abundance of Thy grace:
Keep far our foes, give peace at home; 4 And as on Israel's awe-struck ear The voice exceeding loud,
Where Thou art guide no ill can come. The trump, that angels quake to hear,
4 Teach us to know the Father, Son, Thrilled from the deep, dark cloud ;
And Thee of both, to be but One;
That through the ages all along, 5 So, when the Spirit of our God
This may be our endless song : Came down His flock to find,
Praise to Thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

U The world's foundations first were laid, Open our ears to hear;
Come, visit every pious mind, Let us not miss the accepted hour;
And pour Thy joys on all mankind; Save, Lord, by love or fear.
From sin and sorrow set us free,
And make us temples worthy Thee. 54. Tune-Veni Creator, 40. L.M. | 2 0 Source of uncreated light,

Whose power doth heaven and earth command,

That with Thy light and guidance blest, And peace, the fruit of love, bestow.
We may escape the snares of sin. 4 Immortal honour, endless fame,
6 Teach us the Father to confess, Attend the Almighty Father's name;
And Son, who from the grave revived; The Saviour-Son be glorified,
And with the Father and the Son, Who for lost man's redemption died;

Come when our faithless hearts are cold, Of God most high; the fire of love,
And stir them with an inward grace.
2 Thou that art Power and Peace combined,
All highest Strength, all purest Love, 3 Thy gifts are manifold; Thou writest
The rushing of the mighty Wind,
The brooding of the gentle Dove, -
3 Come, give us still Thy powerful aid,
And urge us on, and keep us Thine; 4 Enlighten our dark souls, till they
Nor leave the hearts that once were made Thy love, Thy heavenly love embrace;
Fit temples for Thy grace divine: And since we are by nature frail,
4 Nor let us quench Thy sevenfold light; Assist us with Thy saving grace.
But still with softest breathings stir 5 Drive far from us the mortal foe,
Our wayward souls-and lead us right, And grant us to have peace within ;
O Holy Ghost, the Comforter !
