The Coming of the King

Come, oh come, oh great and mighty King

And relieve us of all our suffering

Take us to your kingdom up above

And surround us in your glorious love

Let no evil stand in our way

And help us prepare for that wondrous day

 

Hearken, hearken, for the coming of the King!

You will know when you hear the angels sing

That the King has come down to earth

And is that Babe sitting by the hearth

 

Come, oh come, oh God and Creator

Keep us close to you forever more

Keep our faith strong and true

Until the day we can see You

Surrounded by Your great creation

And never again fear separation

 

Hearken, hearken, for the coming of the King!

You will know when you hear the angels sing

That the King has come down to earth

And is that Babe sitting by the hearth

 

Come, oh come, oh perfect Priest

And invite us to the wedding feast

Where tears are wiped and sadness is gone

Where worries are forgotten ere long

And a warmth that seeps into your bone

With prospect of coming home

 

Hearken, hearken, for the coming of the King!

You will know when you hear the angels sing

That the King has come down to earth

And is that Babe sitting by the hearth

 

Come, oh come, oh spotless Sacrifice

You have come to pay our heavy price

Oh what love is this we see

Oh how can this be?

Your love has made You so small

For us who don’t deserve it at all

 

Hearken, hearken, for the coming of the King!

You will know when you hear the angels sing

That the King has come down to earth

And is that Babe sitting by the hearth
