Sacred Scripture:  Revelation 1:1-8

Hymn:  Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending

VERSE ONE:

Lo’ He comes, with clouds descending,

once for our salvation slain.

Thousand, thousand saints attending,

Swell the triumph of His train.

Alleluia!  Alleluia, alleluia!

Christ, the Lord, returns to reign.

VERSE TWO:

Ev;ry 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, deeply wailing, deeply wailing,

Shall, the true Messiah, see.

VERSE THREE:

Those dear tokens of His Passion,

Still, His dazzling body, bears,

Cause of endless exaltation,

To His ransomed worshippers.

With what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture,

Gaze, we on, those glorious scars.

VERSE FOUR:

Yea, amen!  Let all adore Thee,

High on Thine eternal throne.

Savior, take the pow’r and glory,

Claim the Kingdom for Thine own.

Alleluia!  Alleluia, alleluia!

Thou shall reign and thou alone.
