1 The sun will pale before Him,
The moon forget to shine,
When Christ, with hosts of angels,
Shall come in light divine.

O hail Him King of glory,
Who bringeth joy to men;
O earth, pour out hosannas
When Jesus comes again,
When Jesus comes again.

2 All grief shall turn to singing,
And pain forever flee,
The strife with sin be over,
And Satan’s captives free. [Refrain]

3 He’ll wipe all tears of sadness
With His own loving hand,
And take His waiting children
To sweet Immanuel’s land. [Refrain]
