1 Jesus 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.

2 Every eye shall then behold him
robed in awesome majesty;
those who jeered at him and sold him,
pierced and nailed him to the tree,
shamed and grieving,
shamed and grieving,
shamed and grieving,
shall their true Messiah see.

3 All the wounds of cross and passion
still his glorious body bears;
cause of endless exultation
to his ransomed worshippers.
With what gladness,
with what gladness,
with what gladness,
we shall see the Saviour's scars!

4 Yes, Amen! let all adore you
high on your eternal throne;
crowns and empires fall before you
claim the kingdom for your own.
Come, Lord Jesus;
come, Lord Jesus;
come, Lord Jesus
everlasting God, come down!
