Hymn 404Play music
1 Our Lord will come,but not the same
As once in lowly form he came-
A silenct Lamb, to slaughter led,
The bruised, the suff'ring, and the dead.
2 The Lord will come,a dreadful form,
With wreath of flame,and robe of storm,
To shake the earth and cleave the sky,
And bring the day of judgement nigh.
3 Can this be he who once did stray,
A pilgrim on the world's highway,
By power oppressed, and mocked by pride,
The Nazarene, the Crucified?
4 Yes,tyrants! to the rocks complain;
Go seek the mountain-clefts in vain:
But faith, victorious o'er the tomb,
Shall sing for joy, The Lord is come.
