1 The Lord shall come; at that great day
The heavens, like smoke, shall pass away;
And earth, by penal flames destroyed,
Shall melt into the mighty void.
2 The Lord shall come; but not the same
As once in lowliness He came,
To dwell with sinful man below,
In weakness, poverty, and woe;
3 No, when He comes the second time,
Enthroned in majesty sublime,
Unnumbered hosts His praise shall sing,
And hail the universal King.
4 O, then shall guilty souls begin
To taste the bitterness of sin;
And vainly on the mountains call,
To hide them from the Judge of all.
5 Then saints shall lift their waiting eyes,
And to the heavenly mansions rise;
Savior, our hearts by grace prepare
With them Thy purchased bliss to share.
