Lord Jesus, come!

Come, Saviour, come!

To wash away sin's crimson stain,
 
Lord Jesus, come!

The trophy of Thy love divine!
 
Lord Jesus, come!

In Thy blest presence evermore!

Let every knee bow down,
 
And every tongue to Thee confess,
 
The Lord of all come forth to bless,
 
Lord Jesus, come!

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.
