1 Lo, he comes, array'd in vengeance,
Riding down the heavenly road:
Floods of fury roll before him--
Who can meet an angry God?
Who can stand before his rod?
2 Lo, he comes in glory shining:
Saints, arise and meet your king!
Glorious captain of salvation,
Welcome, welcome, hear them sing!
Shouts of triumph
Make the heavens with echoes ring!
3 Now despisers, look and wonder!
Hear the dreadful sound 'depart,'
Rattling like a peal of thunder,
Thro' each guilty rebel's heart!
Lost for ever,
Hope and sinners here must part!
4 Still they hear the awful sentence,
Hell resounds the dreadful roar;
While their heartstrings twine with anguish,
Trembling on the burning shore!!
Justice seals it--
Down thy sink to rise no more!
5 How they shrink, with horror viewing
Hell's deep caverns op'ning wide!
Guilty thoughts, like ghosts pursuing,
Plunge them down the rolling ride!
Ye who scorn the Lamb that died!
6 Hark! ten thousand harps resounding!
Form'd in bright and grand array:
See the glorious armies rising,
While their captain leads the way!
Heaven before them
Opens an eternal day.
