1 Bright sunlit shore where once He taught,
Where sick and sad to Him were brought;
Where none in vain His aid besought,
Saviour and Friend divine!
Saviour and Friend divine!

Hear us, hear us,
Saviour and Friend, be near us,
Light eternal, upon us shine!
Come we, Thy name confessing,
Come we to seek Thy blessing,
We yield our wills to Thine;
O Saviour Friend divine;
On Thee we call, O Lord of all,
Saviour and Friend divine.

2 Bright sunlit shore where throngs were led,
Hung’ring and faint for living Bread;
By Him their souls for aye were fed,
Saviour and Friend divine! [Refrain]

3 May we by faith our Lord behold,
Jesus whose love shall e’er enfold;
Find Him as in the days of old,
Saviour and Friend divine! [Refrain]
