Christ My Song - 1456

Jesus comes, by crowds attended
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Jesus comes, by crowds attended.

"For he cometh to judge the earth." (Psalm 98,9)

1. Jesus comes, by crowds attended,
  heav'n the dazzling train supplies:
call the dead; the night is ended;
  bid the sleeping dust arise:
        let the ransomed
  join the Saviour in the skies.

2. 'Tis the day so long expected;
  shout, ye saints, and triumph now;
see your Lord, by man rejected;
  many crowns adorn his brow;
        'tis his triumph:
  every knee to him shall bow.

3. While dismay on others seizes,
  go and share your Master's joy;
sound the sacred name of Jesus;
  let his praise your tongues employ:
        praise him, praise him!
  Pleasures yours that never cloy.

4. Yonder mansion, filled with glory,
  is the place where Jesus reigns;
go, repeat the joyful story
  of his love, in rapt'rous strains;
        for his people
  an eternal rest remains.

5. There around his throne assembling,
  all his people see his face;
here their joy was mixed with trembling,
  but in heav'n no fear has place:
        happy people!
  Happy made by sovereign grace.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 67.
