285. Jesus, Call Thou Me

1 Jesus, call thou me
from the world to thee;
speed me ever, stay me never;
Jesus, call thou me.

2 Not Jerusalem -
lowly Bethlehem
'twas that gave us Christ to save us;
not Jerusalem.

3 Favored Bethlehem!
honored is that name;
thence came Jesus to release us;
favored Bethlehem!

4 Wondrous Child divine!
warm this heart of mine;
keep it burning, for thee yearning,
wondrous Child divine!

5 Jesus, call thou me
from the world to thee;
speed me ever, stay me never;
Jesus, call thou me.
