Christ My Song - 1213
See! he comes, his work is done
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
See! he comes, his work is done.
"His right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory."
1. See! he comes, his work is done,
see the victor coming!
See! he comes, the day is won;
fresh his honours blooming:
this is he whom many foes
threatened and assaulted;
but above them all he rose,
now the more exalted. PDF - Midi
2. Jesus is the victor's name,
Jesus, Lord of glory;
fly, ye heralds, spread his fame,
tell the joyful story:
make the Saviour's triumph known,
let the nations hear it;
he alone deserves the crown,
he alone shall wear it.
3. Jesus comes, he won the day,
go ye forth to meet him;
bring the palm, and strew the way,
and with singing greet him:
well his people now may sing,
sing with exultation,
since the victor is their king,
and he brings salvation.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 38.
