The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns

Scripture References

Further Reflections on Scripture References

Infused with the imagery of morning light typical of early Greek hymnody, this Advent text stirs hope in the hearts of all who look forward to the return of Christ. “The King Shall Come” is a confession of faith in the sure return of our Lord; his coming again will occur in a blaze of glory, which will far surpass his earthly death and resurrection. The text concludes with a paraphrase of the ancient prayer of the church-"Maranatha," or "Lord, come quickly" (Rev. 22:20).

Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 12, Question and Answer 31 is a reminder that Christ promised to return and will do so as King. He has ascended to heaven “to show there that he is the head of his church, the one through whom the Father rules all things.” He was anointed as “our eternal king who governs us by his Word and Spirit, and who guards us and keeps us in the freedom he has won for us.”
