Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending by Charles Wesley

"Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending" is a hymn written by Charles Wesley.


Lo, he comes with clouds descending,

once for favored sinners slain;

thousand, thousand saints attending

swell the triumph of his train.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

God appears on earth to reign.

Every eye shall now behold him,

robed in dreadful majesty;

those who set at naught and sold him,

pierced and nailed him to the tree,

deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing,

shall the true Messiah see.

The dear tokens of his passion

still his dazzling body bears;

cause of endless exultation

to his ransomed worshippers;

with what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture,

gaze we on those glorious scars!

Yea, Amen! Let all adore thee,

high on thy eternal throne;

Savior, take the power and glory,

claim the kingdom for thine own.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Everlasting God, come down!

Alternatively, the last two stanzas may be

Now the Savior long expected,

See, in solemn pomp appear;

All His saints, by man rejected,

Now shall meet Him in the air:

Alleluia, alleluia!

See the day of God appear.

Yea, amen! let all adore Thee,

High on Thine eternal throne;

Savior, take the pow'r and glory,

Claim the kingdom for Thine own:

O come quickly, O come quickly,

Alleluia! come, Lord, come!
