 1.  Lo! He comes with clouds descending,
     Once for favored sinners slain;
     Thousand thousand saints attending,
     Swell the triumph of His train:
     Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
     God appears on earth to reign.

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

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

 4.  Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
     High on Thine eternal throne;
     Savior, take the power and glory,
     Claim the kingdom for Thine own;
     O come quickly! O come quickly!
     Everlasting God, come down!
