1 Ye servants of the Lord,
In Jesu’s praises join,
Who now confirms His word,
And sends another sign,
Sign of His day, and kingdom near:
Look up, and see your Lord appear!

2 His coming He foreshows
By famine, plague, and war,
And epidemic woes
His swift approach declare,
Trembles the earth to find Him near:
Look up, and see your Lord appear!

3 Hark how all nature groans
In pangs of second birth!
Expect, ye ransomed ones,
A new created earth,
The ruin of the old is near:
Look up, and see your Lord appear!

4 His tokens we espy,
And now lift up our head,
And in the earthquake cry,
It is my Savior’s tread!
He comes to save His servants here:
Look up, and see your Lord appear.

5 We do with joy look up,
In national distress,
With confidence of hope,
To meet the Prince of Peace,
We, unappalled in general fear,
Look up, and see our Lord appear.

6 Our Lord appears again,
His glorious power to show,
He comes, He comes to reign,
With all His saints below,
Judgment is mercy’s harbinger;
The earth is gone—and Christ is here!

In 1726 Charles Wesley was elected to a Westminster studentship at Christ Church, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1729, and became a college tutor.
