Godfrey Thring, 1864
Jesus came, the heavens adoring,|
Came with peace from realms on high;
Jesus came for man's redemption,
Lowly came on earth to die;
Came in deep humility.
2. Jesus comes again in mercy
3. Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing,|
Bringing news of sins forgiven;
Jesus comes in sounds of gladness,
Leading souls redeemed to heaven.
Now the gate of death is riven.
4. Jesus comes in joy and sorrow,
5. Jesus comes on clouds triumphant|
When the heavens shall pass away;
Jesus comes again in glory.
Let us, then, our homage pay,
Alleluia! ever singing
Till the dawn of endless day.
