4. Lo! He comes! with clouds descending, Now redemption, long expected,
Once for favour'd sinners slain; See, in solemn pomp appear !
Now shall meet Him in the air!
See the day of God appear ! Every eye shall now behold Him, Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee, Robed in dreadful majesty;
High on Thine eternal Throne! Those who set at nought and sold Him,
Saviour ! take the power and glory ; Pierced, and naild Him to the tree, Claim the kingdom for Thine own! Deeply wailing,
Oh, come quickly! Shall the true Messiah see.
Hallelujah! Come, Lord, come! Erery island, sea, and mountain,
Heaven and earth shall flee away ; All who hate Him must, confounded, Hear the trump proclaim the day;
† Come to judgment! Come to judgment! come away.
