Hymn/Song Information

The Lord shall come the earth shall quake




The Lord shall come; the earth shall quake,
The hills their fixed seats forsake;
And, withering from the vault of night,
The stars shall pale their feeble light.


The Lord shall come, but not the same
As once in lowly guise he came;
A silent lamb before his foes,
A weary man, and full of woes;


The Lord shall come; a dreadful form,
With rainbow wreath, and robe of storm,
On cherub wings, and wings of wind,
Anointed Judge of all mankind.


Can this be he, who wont to stray
A pilgrim on the world’s highway,
Oppressed by power, and mocked by pride,
The Nazarene—the crucified?


While sinners to the rocks complain,
And seek the mountain’s cleft in vain,
The saints, ascending from the tomb,
Shall joyfully sing, The Lord is come.


---Alternative verses---


The Lord shall come; the earth shall quake,
The mountains to their centre shake;
And, withering from the vault of night,
The stars withdraw their feeble light.


The Lord shall come, but not the same
As once in lowly form he came;
A silent lamb before his foes,
A weary man, and full of woes;


The Lord shall come; a dreadful form,
With wreath of flame, and robe of storm,
On cherub wings, and wings of wind,
Anointed Judge of all human kind.


Can this be he, who wont to stray
A pilgrim on the world’s highway,
By power oppressed, and mocked by pride,
The Nazarene—the crucified?


While sinners In despair shall call,
“Rocks, hide us! Mountains, on us fall!”
The saints, ascending from the tomb,
Shall sing for joy, “The Lord is come!”
