See, He Comes, the King of Glory


This text is a retelling and application of Matthew 25:31-46, known as "the parable of the sheep and the goats."

I wanted to write a hymn that encouraged believers to anticipate the Last Day with excitement and awe, never fear or dread. I also wanted to remind believers that the works we do for our neighbors are truly done in gratitude to our Savior—not because they will save us (which they won't), but because we are saved.

The text was written for Dr. Steven Paulson, professor of systematic theology at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota. His student body sang it at a morning chapel service for Christ the King Sunday (End Times season) in 2014.

I paired the hymn with HOLY MANNA, but it is definitely seeking a new, original tune—something triumphant, something that truly leads singers to look up and imagine our King coming to us with angels blazing 'round his throne.
