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

    Verse 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,
    Shall the true Messiah see.

    Verse 3
    Every island, sea and mountain,
    Heaven and earth, shall flee away;
    All who hate Him must, confounded,
    Hear the trump proclaim the day:
    Come to judgement!
    Come to judgement! come away!

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