6 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.(KJV)

1. O Lord, how shall I meet Thee, 
How welcome Thee aright? 
Thy people long to greet Thee, 
My Hope, my heart’s Delight! 
O kindle, Lord, most holy, 
Thy lamp within my breast 
To do in spirit lowly 
All that may please Thee best. 

2. Thy Zion strews before Thee 
Green boughs and fairest palms, 
And I, too, will adore Thee 
With joyous songs and psalms. 
My heart shall bloom forever 
For Thee with praises new 
And from Thy name shall never 
Withhold the honor due. 

3. I lay in fetters, groaning, 
Thou com’st to set me free; 
I stood, my shame bemoaning, 
Thou com’st to honor me; 
A glory Thou dost give me, 
A treasure safe on high, 
That will not fail or leave me 
As earthly riches fly. 

4. Love caused Thy incarnation, 
Love brought Thee down to me; 
Thy thirst for my salvation 
Procured my liberty. 
O love beyond all telling, 
That led Thee to embrace, 
In love all love excelling, 
Our lost and fallen race! 

5. Rejoice, then, ye sad-hearted, 
Who sit in deepest gloom, 
Who mourn o’er joys departed 
And tremble at your doom. 
Despair not, He is near you, 
Yea, standing at the door, 
Who best can help and cheer you 
And bids you weep no more. 

6. Ye need not toil nor languish 
Nor ponder day and night 
How in the midst of anguish 
Ye draw Him by your might. 
He comes, He comes all willing, 
Moved by His love alone, 
Your woes and troubles stilling; 
For all to Him are known. 

7. Sin’s debt, that fearful burden, 
Let not your souls distress; 
Your guilt the Lord will pardon 
And cover by His grace. 
He comes, for men procuring 
The peace of sin forgiven, 
For all God’s sons securing 
Their heritage in heaven. 

8. What though the foes be raging, 
Heed not their craft and spite; 
Your Lord, the battle waging, 
Will scatter all their might. 
He comes, a King most glorious, 
And all His earthly foes 
In vain His course victorious 
Endeavor to oppose. 

9. He comes to judge the nations, 
A terror to His foes, 
A Light of consolations 
And blessed Hope to those 
Who love the Lord’s appearing. 
O glorious Sun, now come, 
Send forth Thy beams so cheering, 
An guide us safely home.
