Christ's Kingdom and Judgment. 101
Who Thy coming may abide ? All who loved Him, All who long'd to see His day.
" Come," He saith, " ye heirs of glory ;
u Come, ye purchase of my blood ; " Claim the Kingdom now before you,
" Rise, and fill the mount of God, " Fix'd for ever " Where the Lamb on Sion stands."
See ! ten thousand burning seraphs From their thrones as lightnings fly ;
" Take,'' they cry, " your seats above us, " Nearest Him that rules the sky !" Patient sufferers,
How rewarded are ye now !
Now their trials all are ended :
Now the dubious warfare's o'er ; Joy no more wTith sorrow blended,
They shall sigh and weep no more ; God for ever Wipes the tear from every eye.
Through His passion all victorious
Now they drink immortal wine ; In Emmanuel's likeness glorious
As the firmament they shine ; Shine for ever, With the bright and morning Star.
Shout aloud, ye ethereal choirs !
Triumph in Jehovah's praise ! Kindle all your heavenly fires,
All your palms of victory raise! Shout His conquests, Shout salvation to the Lamb !
