LORD JESUS, COME

Lord Jesus, come, and take us from this scene
Where we are touched by maladies which pierce;
None but Thyself can finally relieve
From every ill by which we are bereaved,
From every woe by which we are made weak,
From every sin by which we know defeat;
Only by Thee in whom we are redeemed
Can we obtain our ultimate release;
Only by Thee and what Thou hast achieved
Can we acquire an everlasting peace;
Lord Jesus, come and save us, we entreat,
From sin and death and pain and loss and grief.
