174. Lo! he comes from heav'n descending

1 Lo! he comes, from heav'n descending,
Sent to judge both quick and dead.
Midst ten thousand saints and angels,
See our great exalted Head.
Welcome, welcome, Son of God!

2 Full of awful expectation,
All before the Judge appear.
Truth and Justice go before him;
Now the joyful sentence hear.
Welcome, welcome, Judge divine!

3 "Come, ye blessed of my Father;
Enter into life and joy.
Banish all your fear and sorrow;
Endless praise be your employ."
Welcome, welcome to the skies!

4 Now at once they rise to glory;
Jesus brings them to the King.
There, with all the hosts of heaven,
They eternal anthems sing.
Boundless glory to the Lamb!
