Lo! He Comes With Clouds Descending

One of my absolute favourite Anglican hymns (and I am in good company here because it’s considered one of the Four Great Anglican Hymns). Usually heard around Advent, this video is fitting for the moment because of the procession at the start of Mass.

Pray, brothers and sisters, for those who have been withheld from the Graces poured out from the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Eucharist present at the Mass.

Lo! he comes with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of his train:
Alleluya! Alleluya! Alleluya!
God appears, on earth to reign.
Every eye shall now behold him
Robed in dreadful majesty;
Those who set at nought and sold him,
Pierced and nailed him to the tree,
Deeply wailing
Deeply wailing
Deeply wailing
Shall the true Messiah see.
Yea, Amen! let all adore thee,
High on thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory:
Claim the kingdom for thine own:
O come quickly!
O come quickly!
O come quickly!
Alleluya! Come, Lord, come!
