Lo The Great God Will Come From High


Lo the great God will come from high,
And with Him bring His own reward;
Jesus declares Jehovah nigh,
The sovereign God, th’almighty Lord!
“Lo, from above I quickly come,
And bring My own reward with Me,
And seal the universal doom,
Which stands to all eternity.”

True witness of Thy swift return,
Thy faithful record we receive,
And long on angels’ wings upborne
To meet, and see Thy face, and live:
“Come quickly, Lord,” our hearts reply;
“According to Thy word descend
Jehovah glorious from the sky,
And bring the joy that ne’er shall end.”
