Lo! he comes with clouds descending
(Charles Wesley/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Lo! he comes with clouds descending.

1. Lo! he comes with clouds descending,
  once for favoured sinners slain!
Thousand, thousand saints attending,
  swell the triumph of his train:
      Hallelujah!
  God appears on earth to reign!
      Hallelujah!
  God appears on earth to reign!

2. Every eye shall now behold him,
  robed in dreadful majesty;
those who set at nought and sold him,
  pierced and nailed him to the tree,
      deeply wailing,
  shall the true Messiah see,
      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 worshippers;
      with what rapture
  gaze we on those glorious scars!
      With what rapture
  gaze we on those glorious scars!

4. Yea, Amen! let all adore thee,
  high on thine eternal throne!
Saviour, take the power and glory,
  claim the kingdom for thine own;
      O come quickly!
  Everlasting God, come down!
      O come quickly!
  Everlasting God, come down!

Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 301-302.
