Jesus comes, the Judge of all
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Jesus comes, the Judge of all.

"Behold! He cometh with clouds." (Revelation 1,7)

1. Jesus comes, the Judge of all:
  heav'n's bright hosts adore him:
all the people, great and small,
  now must stand before him.
Crowns of glory wreathe his head:
  Christ, the Lord's anointed;
Judge of living and of dead;
  Judge of old appointed.

2. Heav'n and earth, that stood so long
  shewing forth his glory,
now are, though they seemed so strong,
  like a finished story.
Caused to cease by him whose pow'r
  gave them first a being;
lo! they perish from this hour;
  'tis the Lord's decreeing.

3. Saviour, in that awful day
  keep our hearts from sinking:
for ev'n now we feel dismay,
  of the season thinking.
May we lift our heads that day –
  day of God's salvation;
may we joyful hear him say,
  "Yours a glorious station."

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 58.
