HYMN SPOTLIGHT

Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending (1758)

Charles Wesley, 1707-1788

In 1750, John Cennick, a friend of John and Charles Wesley, wrote an Advent hymn that began, “Lo, he comes, countless trumpets blow before his bloody sign.” Charles Wesley rewrote the hymn and published it eight years later with the title “Thy Kingdom Come.” As usual with Wesley’s hymns, this one is chock full of Biblical allusions. The first stanza references Matthew 24:30, “At that time, the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all of the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.”
