Sixth Sunday in Epiphany


Lo! he comes, with clouds descending,
Once for every sinner slain;
Thousand, thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of His train:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Christ reveals his endless rein.

Every eye shall now behold Him,
Robed in glorious majesty;
Those who ridiculed and sold Him,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

Those dear tokens of His Passion
Still His dazzling body bears,
Cause of endless exultation
To His ransomed worshipers:
With what wonder, with what wonder
Gaze we on those glorious scars!

Yea, amen; let all adore You,
High on Your eternal throne;
Every knee shall bow before You:
Come and take Your people home.
Alleluia, alleluia!
You shall reign, and You alone.
