Lyrics: Lo, He cometh, God’s Messiah

Lo, He cometh, God’s Messiah,
To create eternal peace.
All unrighteousness He’ll banish;
By God’s knowledge it shall cease.
None shall then do any evil
Throughout all the whole wide world.
In the dust they’ll all be humbled
Who resisted God the Lord.

You who suffer, you so needy,
Harvest time is soon at hand.
As the farmer waits, be patient;
Soon triumphant you will stand.
Let your heart rejoice in waiting
For an earth where justice dwells.
God alone shall there be honored,
For He doeth all things well.

What a calling, sure, eternal,
That in Christ our Lord we see –
What a hope as heirs together
On the earth that soon shall be!
In the flesh, by blood and water,
We Christ’s testimony share.
From the dust we shall be lifted
Soon to meet Him in the air.

Hallelujah! Jesus liveth!
See Him strive and use the Sword.
Prince of God Almighty’s army –
Ever with us, our great Lord!
We shall never be discouraged;
In our conflict we are bold.
God is faithful to His promise;
To our anchor strong we hold.

Let us hold out in our battle against sin while we wait for Jesus’ return: “Let your heart rejoice in waiting for an earth where justice dwells!”
