The United Methodist Hymnal


Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending

1.	Lo, he comes with clouds descending, 
	once for favored sinners slain;
	thousand, thousand saints attending 
	swell the triumph of his train. 
	Hallelujah! 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, deeply wailing, 
	shall the true Messiah see.

3.	The dear tokens of his passion 
	still his dazzling body bears; 
	cause of endless exultation 
	to his ransomed worshipers; 
	with what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture, 
	gaze we on those glorious scars!

4.	Yea, Amen! Let all adore thee, 
	high on thy eternal throne; 
	Savior, take the power and glory, 
	claim the kingdom for thine own.
	Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! 
	Everlasting God, come down!
