4,6,8,8,4.
by Mrs. Dent
1
Lord Jesus, come,
 
And take Thy rightful place
 
As Son of Man, of all the theme!
 
Come, Lord, to reign o'er all supreme,
 
Lord Jesus, come!
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17)
2
Lord Jesus, come!
 
The Man of sorrows once,
 
The Man of patience waiting now—
 
The Man of joy, forever, Thou,
 
Come, Saviour, come!
“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” (Isaiah 53:3)
“And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 3:5)
3
Lord Jesus, come!
 
Crowned with Thy many crowns—
 
The Crucified, the Lamb once slain,
 
To wash away sin's crimson stain,
 
Lord Jesus, come!
4
Lord Jesus, come,
 
And take Thy Father's gift,
 
The people by Thy cross made Thine,
 
The trophy of Thy love divine!
 
Lord Jesus, come!
5
Lord Jesus, come,
 
That, lost in Thee, our souls
 
May bow and worship and adore,
 
In Thy blest presence evermore!
 
Lord Jesus, come!
6
Lord Jesus, come,
 
And let Thy glory shine,
 
That quickly these changed bodies may
 
Each one reflect a living ray,
 
Lord Jesus, come!
7
Lord Jesus, come!
 
Let every knee bow down,
 
And every tongue to Thee confess,
 
The Lord of all come forth to bless,
 
Lord Jesus, come!
8
Spirit and bride,
 
With longing voice, say, Come;
 
Yea, Lord, Thy word from that bright home
 
Is, "Surely, I will quickly come!"
 
E'en so, Lord, come.
