Hymn/Song Information

Christ is coming Let creation from her




Christ is coming! Let creation
From her groans and travail cease;
Let the glorious proclamation
Hope restore and faith increase:
|:Christ is coming! :|
Come, Thou blessed Prince of Peace.


Earth can now but tell the story
Of Thy bitter cross and pain;
She shall yet behold Thy glory,
When Thou comest back to reign:
|:Christ is coming! :|
Let each heart repeat the strain.


Though once cradled in a manger,
Oft no pillow but the sod;
Here an alien and a stranger,
Mocked of men, disowned of God.
|:Christ is coming! :|
Come, Thou blessèd Prince of Peace!


Long Thine exiles have been pining,
Far from rest, and home, and Thee:
But, in heavenly vestures shining,
They their loving Lord shall see:
|:Christ is coming! :|
Haste the joyous jubilee.


With that blessed hope before us,
Let our joyful songs be sung,
Let the mighty advent chorus
Onward roll from tongue to tongue:
|:"Christ is coming! :|
Come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!"
