Lyrics

See, ye heirs of sure salvation,
Jesu’s most majestic grace,
At His final revelation,
While He pompously displays
All His glories,
All the Godhead in His face!

From the mystic volume hearing
How His kingdom is restored,
Look ye for His last appearing:
True to His prophetic word,
Lo, He cometh!
Go ye forth to meet your Lord.

To His royal proclamation
Manifested here, attend,
In His state of exaltation
While He doth with clouds descend,
Brings the kingdom,
Gives the joy that ne’er shall end.

Power is all to Jesus given:
All His foes must fall before
The great King of earth and Heaven,
When He takes His royal power!
Now assume it,
Jesus, reign forevermore!
