1. We have heard the solemn story
Of Messiahís sufferings here;
We shall meet him in his glory
When again he shall appear.
2. Every grave shall burst asunder,
Lightnings crest the riven ground;
Loud above the echoing thunder
All shall hear the trumpetís sound.
3. We shall mark his Angels raising
Alleluyas by his side;
We shall see his cresset blazing
Through the welkin far and wide.
4. With the myriads there assembling
Each of us must take his place,
Bide his wrath with fear and trembling,
Or adore his saving grace.
