318. Jesus Comes with Clouds Descending

1 Jesus comes with clouds descending;
see the Lamb for sinners slain!
Thousand, thousand saints attending
join to sing the glad refrain:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ the Lord returns to reign!

2 Every eye shall then behold you
robed in awesome majesty;
those who jeered at him and sold you,
pierced and nailed you to the tree,
shamed and grieving, shamed and grieving,
shall their true Messiah see.

3 Yes, amen! Let all adore you
high on your eternal throne;
crowns and empires fall before you,
claim the kingdom for your own.
Come, Lord Jesus, come, Lord Jesus,
everlasting Christ, come down!
