Hymn/Song Information

Light in the eastern sky Jesus returning




Light in the eastern sky, Jesus returning!
Light in the western sky, Jesus is near!
Soon shall the nations,
His advent discerning,
Hail Him with gladness,
or see Him with fear.

Lord, by Thy hands
that were nail pierced and torn:
Lord by the crown that they wove
of the thorns:
Lord, by Thy passion in Gethsemane:
Christ of all tenderness, plead Thou for me!



Bright be our lamps
as we watch for the dawning,
Girded our loins,
that our strength may not fail;
So as He shines through
the mists of the morning,
We may be ready to cry Him, “All hail!”

Lord, by Thy hands
that were nail pierced and torn:
Lord by the crown that they wove
of the thorns:
Lord, by Thy passion in Gethsemane:
Christ of all tenderness, plead Thou for me!



Not as at Nazareth—lowly they found Him;
He as the Judge cometh back from the sky;
Borne on the whirlwind,
with angels around Him,
Veiling their face from His glory so nigh.

Lord, by Thy hands
that were nail pierced and torn:
Lord by the crown that they wove
of the thorns:
Lord, by Thy passion in Gethsemane:
Christ of all tenderness, plead Thou for me!



Judge of the earth, Who in mercy unfailing
Offered Thyself as atonement for sin,
In that great day, by Thy love all prevailing,
Grant us the rest of Thy heaven to win!

Lord, by Thy hands
that were nail pierced and torn:
Lord by the crown that they wove
of the thorns:
Lord, by Thy passion in Gethsemane:
Christ of all tenderness, plead Thou for me!
