about

This song began with a melody written by Zach. As we looked for hymn lyrics to fit the tune, Charles Wesley’s “Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending” seemed to be the perfect fit. The lyrics reference a theme not often found in modern worship songs: the glorious—and, for some, terrifying—return of Christ. As believers, we long for that day, but are sobered by the reality that the Judge of all the earth will vanquish all evil. “Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of Him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7). — Rich

lyrics

VERSE 1
See, He comes upon the clouds
Jesus Christ, our King appears
All the saints bought by His blood
Will rise to meet Him in the air
Earth and sea shall flee away
All creation waits and groans
For the Lord Redeemer comes
To take His longing exiles home

CHORUS
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Come, O Lord, on earth to reign
Hallelujah, hallelujah
We await the coming day

VERSE 2
Those who mocked and scorned His name
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree
Deeply wail, in sorrow grieve
When they the true Messiah see
Every eye will see the Lord
Dressed in dreadful majesty
Every knee shall bow before
The Judge of all eternity

VERSE 3
Still He bears the holy scars
Evidence of saving grace
All the saints bought by His blood
Shall then rejoice to see His face
Yes, amen, let all adore
Christ on His eternal throne
All the pow’r and might are Yours
Come, claim the kingdom as Your own
