1 Jesus came the heavens adoring
came with peace from realms on high;
Jesus came for our redemption,
humbly came on earth to die,
Alleluia, alleluia!
came in deep humility.

2 Jesus comes to us in mercy
when our hearts are bowed with care;
Jesus comes in power, to answer
every earnest heartfelt prayer:
Alleluia, alleluia!
comes to save us from despair.

3 Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing
all the past he now forgives;
Jesus comes to share his kingdom
with the sinners he receives:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Death is conquered: Jesus lives!

4 Jesus comes on clouds triumphant
when the heavens shall pass away;
Jesus comes again in glory
let us then our homage pay,
Alleluia! ever singing
till the dawn of endless day.
