Jesus, smile upon us

Full Text

1. Blessed Jesus, smile upon us now,
Gathered here to praise thy name;
Hear us as before thy throne we bow,
Keep thy lambs from sin and shame.

Jesus, Saviour, come with us abide,
Fill out hearts with love divine;
Keep us closely by thy precious side,
Let us evermore be thine.

2. In this world so dark with clouds of sin
May we shine with heav'nly light;
Precious souls from danger help us win,
To be thine in glory bright. [Chorus]

3. May we ever kind and gentle be,
Pure in heart and filled with love;
So that those around us all may see
We are like our Lord above. [Chorus]

4. When in kingly robes thou shalt appear
Coming down the flaming sky,
May we dwell with thee, O Saviour dear,
In that blessed bye and bye. [Chorus]
