VERSE 1:
Lo, he comes, with clouds descending,
see the Lamb for sinners slain;
thousand thousand saints attending
join to sing the glad refrain:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
God appears on earth to reign;
God appears on earth to reign.

VERSE 2:
Every eye shall now behold Him
robed in dreadful majesty;
those who mocked and struck and sold Him,
pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
deeply grieving, deeply grieving, deeply grieving,
shall the true Messiah see,
shall the true Messiah see.

VERSE 3:
Those dear tokens of his passion
still his shining body bears,
cause of endless exultation
to his ransomed worshipers;
with rejoicing, with rejoicing, with rejoicing,
gaze upon the glorious scars,
gaze upon the glorious scars,

VERSE 4:
Yes, amen! let all adore You,
high upon Your mighty throne;
Savior, take Your pow'r and glory,
claim the kingdom as Your own:
Come, Lord Jesus, come, Lord Jesus, come, Lord Jesus,


Come and reign forevermore,
Come and reign forevermore!
