Full Text

1 He comes, He comes, Lo! Jesus comes, the promised King of glory;
The Hope of all the ages past, foretold in song and story;
He comes the pris'ner to release; He comes, and wars and tumults cease;
He comes to reign, the Prince of peace,-Lo! Jesus comes.

Chorus:
Then sing, O sing, ye ransomed, sing hallelujah!
Praise His name whom angels in glory adore;
Hail, all hail the conquering Lion of Judah!
He shall reign forever and evermore;
Hail, all hail the conquering Lion of Judah!
He shall reign forevermore.

2 O Church of God, awake, arise! the triumph day is nearing;
Fresh oil into your vessels take, to greet your Lord's appearing;
That in His glory we may share, He bids us for the day prepare:
God's kingdom is at hand; declare, "Lo! Jesus comes." [Chorus]

3 "Thy kindgom come, Thy will be done," in ev'ry land and nation;
And for this glorious time we look with eager expectation;
Signs of His coming multiply; the morning breaks! the watchmen cry!
"Amen, Amen;" Our hearts reply, "Lo! Jesus comes." [Chorus]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
