"Yes, Lord, Come"

O Thou faithful, tender Shepherd,
Thou art stirring up the nest;
And in every little circle,
Thou art doing what is best.
Thou art sending tribulation
Where Thy people sit at ease;
Thou art giving strong conviction
Where they seek themselves to please.
Earth is growing very homeless,
Thou art carrying out Thy will;
Thou art making vacant places
For Thyself alone to fill.
“I am coming very quickly.”
And we answer, “Yes, Lord, come.”
For to those who rise to meet Thee,
It is only “going Home.”
