E’en so, Lord Jesus, quickly come (Revelation 1:4; 4:8; 22:20,5) – Paul Manz

Revelation 1:4b,4:8b,22:20b,5a (Text adapted primarily from Revelation 1, 4, 22)

John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly [some translations: “I am coming soon”]. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Lyrics (Italics for quoted or paraphrased scripture found) 

Peace be to you and grace from Him / Who freed us from our sin / Who loved us all, and shed his blood / That we might saved be.

Sing holy, holy to our Lord / The Lord almighty God / Who was and is, and is to come / Sing holy, holy Lord.

Rejoice in heaven, all ye that dwell therein / Rejoice on earth, ye saints below / For Christ is coming, Is coming soon / For Christ is coming soon.

E’en so Lord Jesus quickly come / And night shall be no more / They need no light, no lamp, nor sun / For Christ will be their All!

E’en so, Lord Jesus, quickly come (1953) by Paul Manz (1919-2009)
