Representative Text

1 When the King of kings comes,
When the Lord of lords comes,
We shall have a joyful day,
When the King of kings comes;
To see the nations broken down,
And kingdoms once of great renown,
And saints now suffering wear the crown,
When the King of kings comes.

2 When the trump of God calls,
When the last of foes falls;
We shall have a joyful day,
When the King of kings comes;
To see the saints raised from the dead,
And all together gathered,
And made like to their glorious Head,
When the King of kings comes.

3 When the foe’s distress comes,
When the Church’s rest comes;
We shall have a joyful day,
When the King of kings comes;
To see the New Jerusalem,
Its fullness and its matchless frame,
Surpassing all report and fame,
When the King of kings comes.

4 When the world’s course is run,
When the judgment is begun!
We shall have a joyful day,
When the King of kings comes;
To see the sons of God well known,
All spotless to their Father shown,
And Jesus all His brethren own,
When the King of kings comes.

5 When our Lord in clouds comes,
When He with great pow’r comes,
We shall have a joyful day,
When the King of kings comes;
To see all things by Him restored,
And God Himself alone adored,
By all the saints with one accord,
When the King of kings comes.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
