Behold, He Cometh

Representative Text

1 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
The King of kings to be;
And every eye His face shall see
Shine forth in dreadful majesty.

Behold, He cometh with clouds,
The Victor over sin;
Lift up your heads, O ye gates
And let the King come in;
Be lifted up, ye everlasting doors,
Now let His reign begin;
Wide open swing, and let the King
The King of glory in.

2 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
The Judge whom all must meet;
And they who pierced His hands and feet
Shall stand before His judgment seat. [Refrain]

3 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
All earthly pomp shall pale;
All kindreds of the earth shall wail,
And sinful men before Him quail. [Refrain]

4 Behold, He cometh with clouds,
His coming draweth near;
Come, now His voice of mercy hear—
Be ready when He shall appear. [Refrain]
