1 Come, quickly come, dread Judge of all;
For, awful though Thine advent be,
All shadows from the truth will fall,
And falsehood die, in sight of Thee:
Come, quickly come: for doubt and fear
Like clouds dissolve when Thou art near.
2 Come, quickly come, great King of all;
Reign all around us, and within;
Let sin no more our souls enthrall,
Let pain and sorrow die with sin;
Come, quickly come: for Thou alone
Canst make Thy scatter'd people one.
3 Come, quickly come, true Life of all;
The curse of death is on the ground;
On every home his shadows fall,
On every heart his mark is found:
Come, quickly come: for grief and pain
Can never cloud Thy glorious reign.
4 Come, quickly come, sure Light of all,
For gloomy night broods o'er our way;
And fainting souls begin to fall
With weary watching for the day:
Come, quickly come: for round Thy throne
No eye is blind, no night is known.

It was included in the 1868 Appendix to Hymns Ancient & Modern, in the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Church Hymns, 1871, and several other collections.
