Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.161

First Line: Lo, He comes with clouds descending,

Lo, He comes with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of His train;
Hallelujah !
Jesus comes, and comes to reign !

2 Every eye shall now behold Him,
Robed in dreadful majesty; [Him,
Those who set at naught and sold
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree.
Deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

3 When the solemn trump has sounded,
Heaven and earth shall flee away;
All who hate Him must, confounded,
Hear the summons of that day—
Come to Judgment !
Come to Judgment, come away !

4 Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear !
All His saints, by men rejected,
Now shall meet Him in the air:
Hallelujah !
See the day of God appear !

5 Yea, Amen ! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own !
Oh, come quickly !
Hallelujah ! come, Lord, come !
