Then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30
Lo! He comes, but not a Savior,
Not by griefs and woes oppressed;
Not the meek, despisèd Jesus,
Not the humble manger-guest.
Not to publish free salvation,
Not to bear the sins of men;
Not to be betrayed, rejected,
Scourged and crucified again.
But He comes, with clouds descending,
With Him saints, unnumbered brings;
Yes, He comes the now triumphant
Lord of lords and King of kings;
Comes to judge the guilty nations,
Every eye shall see that hour;
They who pierced Him, they shall see Him,
And shall tremble at His power.
They who were His true disciples
Gladly will His coming hail;
They who slighted His free pardon,
They shall at His presence wail.
To His own He’ll give a kingdom,
And a crown each one shall wear;
But His foes shall hear the sentence,
Doomed to darkness and despair.
