Lo! he comes with clouds descending, Once for favoured sinners slain; Thousand thousand saints attending Swell the triumph of his train: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Christ the Lord returns to reign. Yea, Amen! let all adore thee, High on thine eternal throne; Saviour, take the power and glory: Claim the kingdom for thine own: Alleluia, Alleluia, alleluia! Though shalt reign and thou alone!
Rejoice, rejoice, believers, and let your lights appear! The evening is advancing, and darker night is near. The Bridegroom is arising and soon is drawing nigh; up, pray and watch and wrestle; At midnight comes the cry. Our hope and expectation, O Jesus, now appear; arise, O Sun so longed for, O’er this benighted sphere. With hearts and hands uplifted, we plead, O Lord, to see the day of earth's redemption That sets your people free
