88. Come, Thou Precious Ransom, Come

1 Come, Thou precious Ransom, come,
Only Hope for sinful mortals!
Come, O Savior of the world!
Open are to Thee all portals.
Come, Thy beauty let us see;
Anxiously we wait for Thee.

2 Enter now my waiting heart,
Glorious King and Lord most holy.
Dwell in me and ne'er depart,
Though I am but poor and lowly.
Ah, what riches will be mine
When Thou art my Guest Divine!

3 My hosannas and my palms
Graciously receive, I pray Thee.
Evermore, as best I can,
Savior, I will homage pay Thee,
And in faith I will embrace,
Lord, Thy merit through Thy grace.

4 Hail, hosanna, David's Son!
Help, Lord; hear our supplication!
Let Thy kingdom, scepter, crown,
Bring us blessing and salvation
That forever we may sing:
Hail! Hosanna to our King!
