Hymn 182
1. Behold, the great Redeemer comes
To bring his ransomed people home;
He comes to save his scattered sheep,
He comes to comfort those who weep.

2. He comes all blessings to impart
Unto the meek and contrite heart,
He comes, he comes to be admired,
He comes to burn the proud with fire.

3. He comes to bless the humble poor,
He comes creation to restore,
He comes the earth to purify,
He comes, but not again to die.

4. He comes, he comes unto his own,
He comes to reign on David's throne;
He comes to stand on Zion's hill,
He comes the Scriptures to fulfil.

5. He comes to tread the wicked down,
He comes the martyrs for to crown,
He comes to dry the mourner's tears,
He comes to reign a thousand years.

6. He comes on Olives mount to stand,
He comes all Israel to defend,
He comes to lay the sinner low,
He comes that Judah may him know.

7. He comes to show his hands and side,
He comes to wed his ready bride,
He comes to reign as King of kings,
He comes, let all creation sing.
