4,6,8,8,4.

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!
2
Lord Jesus, come!
 
The Man of sorrows once,
 
The Man of patience waiting now—
 
The Man of joy, forever, Thou,
 
Come, Savior, come!
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.
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20)
