Christ My Song - 1097
Thou art coming, mighty Saviour! - The coming King
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The coming King.
1. Thou art coming, mighty Saviour!
"King of kings," thy written name.
Thou art coming, royal Saviour!
coming for thy promised reign.
Oh, the joy when sin's confusion
ends beneath thy righteous sway;
oh, the peace when all delusion
at thy presence dies away. PDF - Midi
2. Thou art coming, loving Saviour!
coming first to claim thine own.
Thou art coming, faithful Saviour!
thou wouldst not abide alone.
In thy Father's house in glory
sinners saved shall dwell with thee;
oh the sweetness of the story!
love's own record we shall be.
3. Once thy coming, holy Saviour,
brought thee to the sinner's place!
Wondrous coming – lowly Saviour,
wonderful thy love, thy grace!
Thine the wisdom in the manger,
thine the power upon the cross;
thine the glory – as the stranger;
riches, – though in utter loss!
4. Thou art coming, crownèd Saviour!
not "the second time" for sin;
thou art coming, thronèd Saviour,
bringing all the glory in.
All thy Father's house, its glory,
hangs, by sure behest, on thee:
Oh, the sweetness of the story!
Saviour, come; we wait for thee!
