Come, Lord Jesus, thou who bought us

With thy blood and with thy pain.

Thou who suffered to redeem us,

Come unto thine own to reign.

Make an end of war among us,

Bid all strife amid us cease.

Come, Lord Jesus

Come, and welcome, Prince of Peace.

 

Come, Lord Jesus; Thou hast taught us

Of thy kingdom that shall be

When our sorrows shall be vanquished.

Thus in hope we yearn for thee,

Fill our longing with thy presence;

Wipe away our every tear.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Answer all our hearts’ desire.

 

Come, Lord Jesus, to thy people

Who await the promised hour.

Come amid the clouds of heaven

In thy majesty and power.

We shall bow before thee gladly,

And with one accord shall sing,

Blessed Jesus,

Thou art Lord and God and King!
