Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

318. 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!
Christ the Lord returns to reign!

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

3 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,
everlasting Christ, come down!
