He Is, He Was, and He Will Be

Who is this Son of Man?
He is the Son of God
He Is, He Was, and He Will Be
His Holy name we laud!
Now full of Grace and Truth
He descends from above
Gentle and lowly in His heart
Yet God of Light and Love

Like eternal Father, like eternal Son;
Spanning endless ages, two divinely one.
Alpha and Omega, both the first and last;
Eternally existing, present, future, past.

The resurrection and the life
The One Son of the Blessed
The triune and uncreated
In mortal form enfleshed.
He is the first and He is the Last
The source and the sum
His power and glory will be seen
When His Kingdom comes

Like eternal Father, like eternal Son;
Spanning endless ages, two divinely one.
Alpha and Omega, both the first and last;
Eternally existing, present, future, past.

Soon will appear in heav’n the sign 
Of the returning Son of Man, 
And all the tribes of earth will mourn, 
For they will understand
Then unveiled glory will be shown
As from eternity
And we will know as we are known
God’s true reality

Like eternal Father, like eternal Son;
Spanning endless ages, two divinely one.
Alpha and Omega, both the first and last;
Eternally existing, present, future, past.
