When The Powers Of Heaven Attending


When with Powers of heaven attending,
Angel hosts ten thousand strong,
Christ the Lord to earth descending,
Brings the hour expected long;
Rising to the clouds in air,
Give us grace to meet Thee there.

When for Judgment, earth awaiting
Looks towards the awful throne,
Word nor deed of mine relating,
Ne’er my penitence disown;
From the ill in life I’ve done,
Save me, Thou Almighty One.

Hymns of the Holy Eastern Church,
