Original language: English

Words: William Goode
Music: Evan Stephens

Lo! the mighty God appearing
, 53


1. Lo! the mighty God appearing,From on high Jehovah speaks!Eastern lands the summons hearing,O’er the west His thunder breaks.Earth behold Him!Universal nature shakes.
2. Zion, all its light unfolding,God in glory shall display;Lo! He comes! nor silence holding,Fire and clouds prepare His way;Tempests round HimHasten on the dreadful day.
3. To the heavens His voice ascending,To the earth beneath He cries;Souls immortal, now descending,Let their sleeping dust arise!Rise to judgment;Let Thy throne adorn the skies.
4. Gather first my Saints around me,Those who to my cov’nants stood—Those who humbly sought and found meThrough the dying Savior’s blood.Blest Redeemer,Dearest sacrifice to God.
5. Now the heavens on high adore Him,And His righteousness declare;Sinners perish from before Him,But His Saints His mercies share,Just His judgments;God, Himself the Judge, is there.
