Hymn/Song Information

Lo He comes with clouds descending Once




Lo! He comes
with clouds descending,
Once for favored sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of His train:
|: Hallelujah! :|
Christ the Lord returns to reign.

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



Every eye shall now behold Him
Robed in dreadful majesty;
Those who set at naught and sold Him,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
|: Deeply wailing, :|
Shall the true Messiah see.

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



Millions to their doom are waking,
Sun and stars their light have shed;
Heaven and earth their place forsaking
At his awful look have fled:
|: While the trumpet :|
Summons loud the quick and dead.

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



Lo, the tokens of His passion
Still His glorious body bears;
Cause of endless exultation
To His ransomed worshippers;
[: Hallelujah! :]
ow the day of Christ appears.

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



Every island, sea, and mountain,
Heavín and earth, shall flee away;
All who hate Him must, confounded,
Hear the trump proclaim the day:
|: Come to judgment! :|
Come to judgment! Come away!

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear;
All His saints, by man rejected,
Now shall meet Him in the air:
|: Hallelujah! :|
See the day of God appear!

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



Answer Thine own bride and Spirit,
Hasten, Lord, the general doom!
The new Heavín and earth tíinherit,
Take Thy pining exiles home:
|: All creation, :|
Travails! groans!
and bids Thee come!

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



The dear tokens of His passion
Still His dazzling body bears;
Cause of endless exultation
To His ransomed worshippers;
|: With what rapture, :|
Gaze we on those glorious scars!

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!



Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Savior, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own;
|: O come quickly! :|
Everlasting God, come down!

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Tell all the world adores His sacred name!
