Ved del cielo descendiendo

Representative Text

1 Ve del cielo descendiendo
Al triunfante Redentor;
En su majestad tremenda
Aparece el Salvador.
Su justicia
En la tierra reinará.

2 Vedlo todos, revestido
De divina claridad:
Los que a Cristo habéis vendido,
Los que llenos de maldad,
Con escarnio
Le llamasteis malhechor.

3 Muestra ahora las heridas
Que le hicieron en la cruz;
Las señales estampadas
En su cuerpo que, a la luz
De la gloria,
Encarecen su piedad.

4 Cristo, rey, te veneramos
En tu augusto tribunal;
Nuestras frentes inclinamos
Ante Ti,Dios eternal,
Juez divino,
Todo ser te temerá.

John Cennick was born at Reading, Berkshire, in the year 1717. He became acquainted with Wesley and Whitefield, and preached in the Methodist connection. On the separation of Wesley and Whitefield he joined the latter. In 1745, he attached himself to the Moravians, and made a tour in Germany to fully acquaint himself with the Moravian doctrines. He afterwards ministered in Dublin, and in the north of Ireland. He died in London, in 1755, and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery, Chelsea. He was the author of many hymns, some of which are to be found in every collection. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
