1 Lo! he cometh! countless trumpets
Blow to raise the sleeping dead;
Midst ten thousand saints and angels
See their great exalted head.
Welcome, welcome, Son of God.
2 Ev'ry island, sea, and mountain,
Heav'n and earth shall flee away.
All, who hate him, must, confounded,
Hear the trump proclaim the day:
Come to judgment!
Come to judgment! come away!
3 At his call, the dead awaken,
Rise to life from earth and sea;
All the pow'rs of nature, shaken
By his looks, prepare to flee.
What will then become of thee?
4 But to those, who have confessed,
Lov'd and served the Lord below,
He will say, "come near, ye blessed,
"See the kingdom I bestow:
"You for ever
"Shall my love and glory know."
5 Under sorrows and reproaches,
May this thought our courage raise!
Swiftly God's great day approaches,
Sighs shall then be chang'd to praise.
May we triumph,
When the world is in a blaze!
