21 1
2  But when He cometh back once more,    O Son of Man, so pitying found Then shall be set the great white throne; For all the tears Thy people shed:
And earth and heaven shall flee before
The face of Him Who sits thereon.          4 Be with us in that awful hour,
And by Thy crown, and by Thy grave,
3  O Son of God, in glory crowned,              By all Thy love and all Thy power, The Judge ordained of quick and dead; In that great Day of Judgment save.
Cecil F. Alexander, 1852
I 2 Wakened by the solemn warning, Let the earth-bound soul arise; Christ, her Sun, all sloth dispelling, Shines upon the morning skies.
3 Lo! the Lamb, so long expected,
Comes with pardon down from heaven;
Let us haste with tears of sorrow, One and all, to be forgiven.
4 So, when next He comes in glory Wrapping all the earth in fear, Not for chastening, but salvation, Unto us shall He appear.
Latin, 5th Cent. Tr. by Rev. Edward Caswall, 1S48
