1 In the sun, and moon, and stars,
Signs and wonders there shall be;
Earth shall quake with inward fears,
Nations with perplexity.
2 Soon shall ocean’s hoary deep
Tossed with stranger tempests rise;
Wilder storms the mountain sweep;
Louder thunders rock the skies.
3 Dread alarms shall shake the proud,
Pale amazement, restless fear;
And, amid the thunder cloud,
Shall the Son of Man appear.
4 But though from His awful face
Heaven and earth away shall fly,
Fear not ye, His chosen race,
Your redemption draweth nigh.

In the sun and moon and stars. Bp. R. Heber. [Advent.] Appeared in the Christian Observer, Oct. 1811, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed "2nd Sunday in Advent—Luke xxi." It was repeated with some changes in the text in Heber's posthumous Hymns, &c, 1827, p. 9. This text is that usually followed in the hymnbooks in Great Britain and America.
