Claim the Kingdom

Here is the final hymn this week, which is sung to the same tune as “Angels From the Realms of Glory” — have a blessed Resurrection Sunday!

 

Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending

 Lo, He comes with clouds descending, once for favored sinners slain;

All the many saints attending swell the triumph of His train:

Alleluia! Alleluia! God appears on earth to reign.

 

Every eye shall now behold Him, robed in awesome majesty;

Those who once denied and killed Him, pierced and nailed Him to the tree,

Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, shall the true Messiah see.

 

Now redemption, long expected, see in solemn pomp appear:

All His saints, by man rejected, now shall meet Him in the air:

Alleluia! Alleluia! See the day of God appear.

 

Yes, Amen! Let all adore Thee, high on the eternal throne;

Savior, take the power and glory, claim the kingdom for Your own:

Alleluia! Alleluia! Christ shall reign and Christ alone!

 

Charles Wesley
