Too                    The Book of Praise.
Yea, Amen ! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne : Saviour, take the power and glory ; Claim the kingdom for Thine own :
O, come quickly, Everlasting God, come down !
Variation by Martin Madan. 1760. Froj7t Charles Wesley. 1758. And John Cennick. 1752.
XCI.
Lo ! He comes with clouds descending !
Hark ! the trump of God is blown, And th' Archangel's voice attending
Makes the high procession known : Sons of Adam ! Rise, and stand before your God!
Crowns and sceptres fall before Him, Kings and conquerors own His sway ;
Haughtiest monarchs now adore Him, While they see His lightnings play: How triumphant
Is the world's Redeemer now !
Hear His voice, as mighty thunder
Sounding in eternal roar, While its echo rends in sunder
Rocks and mountains, sea and shore: Hark! His accents Through th' unfathomed deep resound !
u Come, Lord Jesus ! O come quickly !"
Oft has prayed the mourning Bride : " Lo !" He answers, " I come quickly !"
