271. Christ is Coming! Let Creation

1 Christ is coming! Let creation bid her groans and travail cease;
let the glorious proclamation hope restore and faith increase;
Christ is coming! Christ is coming!
Come, O blessèd Prince of Peace! (Prince of Peace!)
Come, O blessèd Prince of Peace!

2 We can now but tell the story of your bitter cross and pain;
we shall yet behold your glory in your coming back to reign;
Christ is coming! Christ is coming!
Let each heart repeat the strain. )sing the strain.)
Let each heart repeat the strain.

3 With that "blessèd hope" before us, let no harp remain unstrung;
let the mighty advent chorus onward roll from tongue to tongue:
Christ is coming! Christ is coming!
Come, Lord Jesus, quickly come! (quickly come!)
Come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
