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
Thou who loved us with a love that hath no end
Come release us from the weakness and the griefs of mortal men
Bid the blind behold thy glory
Bid the lame in strength arise
Bid the grave yield up our lost ones unto never-ending life

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!
