Lyrics

Jesus comes, He comes in glory,
All ye saints, adore His name;
Sound His praises, all ye nations,
Him the King of kings proclaim.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
He was dead, but lives again;
Honor, power and highest glory
Be forever His. Amen.

He is risen, He is risen!
Sound it o’er the earth abroad;
Lo! the chief among ten thousand,
See Him stand, our Savior, God.

Refrain

See His face with glory beaming,
Shining as the noonday sun;
King of kings ye nations crown Him,
Savior, Lord, Eternal One.
