God Is Known Among His People

Lo! He Cometh!

Lo! He Comes with Clouds Descending

Lo he comes in clouds descending,
Once for helpless sinner slain!
Thousand, thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of his train:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
All the Angels cry amen.

Notes

F. Pinder composed TEMPLE BORO, published as a setting for Psalm 76 in the 1912 Psalter and in every edition of the Psalter Hymnal. Nothing is known about the composer or the origin of the tune. TEMPLE BORO's three long lines have identical rhythms. Interesting facets of this music are its wide melodic range, its harmonization (undoubtedly intended for choral singing), and the climax in the final line. Strive for three long lines; avoid six choppy phrases.
