When the Lord in glory comes

When the Lord in glory comes,
not the trumpets, not the drums,
not the anthem, not the psalm,
not the thunder, not the calm,
not the shout the heavens raise,
not the chorus, not the praise,
not the silences sublime,
not the sounds of space and time,
but his voice when he appears
shall be music to my ears;
but his voice when he appears
shall be music to my ears.

2. When the Lord is seen again,
not the glories of his reign,
not the lightnings through the storm,
not the radiance of his form,
not his pomp and power alone,
not the splendours of his throne,
not his robe and diadems,
not the gold and not the gems,
but his face upon my sight
shall be darkness into light;
but his face upon my sight
shall be darkness into light.

3. When the Lord to human eyes
shall bestride our narrow skies,
not the child of humble birth,
not the carpenter of earth,
not the man by all denied,
not the victim crucified,
but the God who died to save,
but the victor of the grave,
he it is to whom I fall,
Jesus Christ, my all in all;
he it is to whom I fall,
Jesus Christ, my all in all.
