Welcome Sight! The Lord Descending!

Author: Thomas Kelly Meter: Appears in 7 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 First Line: Welcome sight! the Lord descending Lyrics: 1. Welcome sight! the Lord descending! Jesus in the clouds appears; Lo! the Savior comes, intending Now to dry His people’s tears. Lo! the Savior comes to reign: Welcome to His waiting train. 2. Long they mourned their absent master; Long they felt like men forlorn; Bid the seasons fly still faster, While they sighed for His return: Lo! the period comes at last; All their sorrows now are past. 3. Now from home no longer banished, They are going to their rest; Though the heavens and earth have vanished, With their Lord they shall be blest: Blest with Him His saints shall be; Blest throughout eternity! 4. Happy people! grace unbounded, Grace alone, exalts you thus: Be ashamed, and be confounded; Sing for ever—Not to us, Not to us be glory given— Glory to the God of Heaven!

Come And See What God Is Doing

Author: Thomas Kelly Meter: Appears in 3 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Come and see what God is doing: His are works of power and grace; Round the world His Word is going, Giving light to every place. ’Tis a day expected long, Theme of old prophetic song. 2 While the nations are contending, And the tumult louder grows; Through the earth our God is sending News of peace, to heal our woes. Sounds of mercy sweeter are, Heard amid the din of war. 3 Long the nations were benighted, And the darkness has been still; But the lamp that God has lighted, Now is set upon a hill. Many now enjoy the light, And with rapture hail the sight. 4 Higher still and higher place it: Show it to the world around; Never should we cease to raise it, While a nation still is found, One to whom it is not giv’n To enjoy the light of Heav’n.

Christ Is Born, Go Forth To Meet Him

Author: Cosmas the Melodist; John Brownlie Meter: Appears in 3 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Christ is born, go forth to meet Him, Christ by all the heaven adored; Singing songs of welcome, greet Him, For the earth receives her Lord. All ye nations shout and sing; For He comes, your glorious king. 2 Once His heavenly image bearing, Man has sunk to depths of sin; Now defiled, debased, despairing, Clad in rags and foul within; But our God, who beauty gave, Lifts the soul He comes to save. 3 From the height of Heaven beholding, Pity filled the heart of grace, And our Lord, His love unfolding, Made the earth His dwelling-place; And a virgin mother gave God Incarnate, man to save. 4 Wisdom, might, and Word eternal, Glory of the Father, Thou! Hid from man and powers supernal, Lo, He wears our nature now! To the Lord your worship bring, Praise Him, your victorious king.
