Then Come and Tarry Not

Representative Text

1 Thou camest once nor had a home

But we're expecting Thee to come
A mighty Prince some day.

Then come and tarry not,
All creation 'waits the day;
Then come and tarry not,
All creation awaits the day.

2 Thou wast despised and lowly then,
A teacher of the poor;
But when Thou shalt appear again
Who shall the hour endure? [Refrain]

3 Thou warest then a crown of thorns
When suff'ring for our sin;
But crown of crowns shall Thee adorn
When Thou shalt come again. [Refrain]

4 They mock'd Thee with a purple robe,
And with a reed did shame,
But then shall all upon this globe
Bow to Thy mighty name. [Refrain]
