1 Once He came, how meek and lowly,
Kind, and full of love for men;
Judge supreme, unerring, holy,
Soon He comes on earth again.
2 Be the terrors and the blessing
Of that day before us now,
Every grateful heart possessing,
Cheering every thoughtful brow.
3 Grateful, that in form and feeling,
One of us, to earth He came;
Thoughtful, for He died revealing
All our hope and all our shame.
4 May the Savior here have known us
Heedful of His words and way,
And th’almighty Judge will own us
On His last and dreadful day.
