Representative Text

1 O Prince of Peace, who once didst rise
In splendid triumph to the skies,
Before the rapt disciples’ eyes,
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
For Thy appearance all things pray;
All nature sighs at Thy delay!
Thy people cry, “No longer stay.”
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!

2 Hear Thou the whole creation’s groan,
The war-swept nations’ plaintive moan,
The lands made deserts all forlorn;
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
See signals of distress unfurled
By states on stormy billows hurled;
Thou Polestar of a shipwrecked world,
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!

3 By doubts and sorrows inly pressed,
By foes beleaguered and oppressed,
Hear the strong cry of world unrest!
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
Hope of the tried and faithful host,
Their only glory, joy, and boast,
Without Thy advent all is lost—
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!

4 Come with Thy beauteous diadem;
Come with embattled cherubim,
Come with the shout of seraphim.
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
Come on Thy seat of radiant cloud;
Come with the Archangel’s trumpet loud;
Come Saviour, let the heavens be bowed—
O come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
