Lo! He Cometh!

Full Text

1. Lo! He cometh! countless trumpets
Blow before his bloody sign,
Midst ten thousand saints and angels,
See the crucified shine.
Hallelujah!
Welcome, welcome bleeding Lamb!

2. Now his merit by the harpers,
Through the eternal deep resounds!
Now resplendent shine his nail prints,
Every eye shall see the wounds;
They who pierced him
Shall at his appearing wail.

3. Every island, sea, and mountain,
Heaven and earth shall flee away!
All who hate him must, ashamed,
Hear the trump proclaim the day:
Come to judgment,
Stand before the Son of man.

4. Saints, who love him, view his glory,
Shining in his bruised face:
See him seated on the rainbow,
Now his people's head shall raise:
Happy mourners!
Now on clouds he comes! he comes!

5. Now redemption, long expected,
See, in solemn pomp appear:
All his people, once rejected,
Now shall meet him in the air:
Hallelujah!
Now the promised kingdom's come!

6.View him smiling – now determined
Every evil to destroy;
All the nations now shall sing him
Songs of everlasting joy.
O, come quickly!
Hallelujah! come Lord, come!

Author: John Cennick

John Cennick was born at Reading, Berkshire, in the year 1717. He became acquainted with Wesley and Whitefield, and preached in the Methodist connection. On the separation of Wesley and Whitefield he joined the latter. In 1745, he attached himself to the Moravians, and made a tour in Germany to fully acquaint himself with the Moravian doctrines. He afterwards ministered in Dublin, and in the north of Ireland. He died in London, in 1755, and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery, Chelsea. He was the author of many hymns, some of which are to be found in every collection. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
