1 When Christ came down on earth of old,
He took our nature, poor and low;
He wore no form of angel mold,
But shared our weakness and our woe.
2 But when He cometh back once more,
Then shall be set the great white throne;
And earth and Heav’n shall flee before
The face of Him that sits thereon.
3 O Son of God! in glory crowned,
The Judge ordained of quick and dead;
O Son of Man! so pitying found
For all the tears Thy people shed.
4 Be with us in that awful hour,
And by Thy crown, and by Thy grave,
And by Thy love and all Thy power,
In that great day of judgment, save!
