1. See, He comes! whom ev'ry nation,
    Taught of God, desired to see:
Filled with hope and expectation,
    That He would their Saviour be.
Sing, O! sing with exultation.
    Haste we to our Father's Home.
Peace, redemption, joy, salvation,
    Now from Heaven to earth are come.

2. See, He comes! whom kings and sages,
    Prophets, patriarchs of old,
Distant climes and countless ages,
    Waited eager to behold.
Sing, O! sing with exultation.
    Haste we to our Father's Home.
Peace, redemption, joy, salvation,
    Now from Heaven to earth are come.

3. See, the Lamb of God appearing,
    God of God from Heaven above!
See the Heavenly Bridegroom cheering
    His dear Bride with words of love!
Glory to th' Eternal Father
    Glory to th' Incarnate Son,
Glory to the Holy Spirit,
    Glory to the Three in One.
