57. Lo, He comes, with clouds descending

8.7.8.7.4.7

St. Thomas:

J. F. Wade's Cantus Diversi, 1751

John Cennick, 1750, and

Charles Wesley, 1758

Lo, He comes, with clouds descending,

Once for our salvation slain;

Thousand thousand saints attending

Swell the triumph of his train:

Alleluia!

Christ, the Lord, returns to reign.

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,

Shall the true Messiah see.

Now redemption, long expected,

See in solemn pomp appear:

All his saints, by men rejected,

Now shall meet him in the air:

Alleluia!

See the day of God appear.

Yea, amen; let all adore thee,

High on thine eternal throne;

Savior, take the power and glory;

Claim the kingdoms for thine own:

Alleluia!

Thou shalt reign, and thou alone.

Amen.
