Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
1. Jesus once of humble birth,
Now in glory comes to earth;
Once he suffered grief and pain—
Now he comes on earth to reign.
2. Once a meek and lowly lamb—
Now the Lord, the great I AM;
Once with thieves was crucified—
Now on yonder cloud he rides.
3. Once he groaned in blood and tears—
Now in glory he appears;
Once rejected by his own—
Now their king he shall become.
4. Once forsaken, left alone—
Now exalted to a throne;
Once all things he meekly bore—
But he now will bear no more.
