"BEHOLD, I come, I come with speed,
With Me is My reward,
And then of every man the meed
"Come, then!" from every faithful breast The HOLY SPIRIT cries;
And "Come!" in spotless raiment dressed, The Church, Thy bride replies.
O blest are they whose bosoms share
Blest who the bridal garments wear,
Blest, who in Thy communion erst
And when at length Thy warnings show At hand the hour of doom,
Can meekly answer, "Even so,
Yea, come, LORD JESUS, come!"
LIGHT of those, whose dreary dwelling
JESUS, now Thy love revealing,
Still we wait for Thine appearing, Life and joy Thy beams impart; Chasing all our doubts, and cheering Every meek and contrite heart.
Show Thy power in every nation,
By Thine all-sufficient merit
GREAT GOD! what do I see and hear!
The Judge of mankind doth appear
The trumpet sounds, the graves restore
The dead in CHRIST shall first arise,
With joy His throne surrounding:
On those prepared to meet Him.
HARK! an awful voice is sounding;
Startled at the solemn warning,
Lo! the LAMB so long expected,
So when next He comes with glory,
COME, Thou long-expected JESUS, Born to set Thy people free; From our fears and sins release us, Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Born Thy people to deliver;
Born a child, and yet a king;
Born to reign in us for ever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal SPIRIT
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
