All hail the coming Son of God

Full Text

1 All hail the coming Son of God,
He’s coming back again;
He’s coming in the clouds of heaven
He’s coming back to reign!
He’s coming in the clouds of heaven
He’s coming back to reign!

2 Sinners whose sins are washed away,
Nor left a single stain,
Go, hail the advent of your Lord;
He’s coming back to reign!
Go, hail the advent of your Lord;
He’s coming back to reign!

3 Let every kindred, every tribe,
Free of creation’s pain,
Aloud acclaim His welcome back—
He’s coming back to reign!
Aloud acclaim His welcome back—
He’s coming back to reign!

4 Ah! soon with all the ransomed throng,
Beholding Him once slain,
We’ll see the rolling cloud, and shout,
He’s coming back to reign!
We’ll see the rolling cloud, and shout,
He’s coming back to reign!
