Hymn 403Play music
1 O quickly come, great Judge of all;
For, aweful though thine advent be,
All shadows from the truth will fall,
And falsehood die, at sight of thee;
O quickly come:for doubt and fear
Like clouds dissolve when thou art near.
2 O quickly come,great King of all;
Reign all around us, and within;
Let sin no more our souls enthral,
Let pain and sorrow die with sin:
O quickly come:for thou alone
Canst make thy scattered people one.
3 O quickly come,true Life of all;
For death is mighty all around;
On every home his shadows fall,
On every heart his mark is found:
O quickly come: for grief and pain
Can never cloud thy glorious reign.
