Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

283. Jesus Comes with Clouds Descending

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.
God appears on earth to reign.

2 Every eye shall then behold You
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.
Shall their true Messiah see.

3 All the wounds of cross and passion
still his glorious body bears;
cause of endless exultation
to his ransome worshipers.
With what gladness, with what gladness,
with what gladness,
we shall see the Savior's scars;
we shall see the Savior'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 Christ, come down;
Everlasting Christ, come down!
