1 Chosen of God and precious,
Jesus, Jesus!
Come to us now, refresh us,
Jesus, Lord.

Oh! how we need refreshing,
Oh! how we need Thy blessing,
Come, Jesus, precious Saviour,
Come, come, come.

2 Often the way grows dreary,
Jesus, Jesus!
But Thou canst cheer the weary,
Jesus, Lord. [Refrain]

3 No other hope in sorrow,
Jesus, Jesus!
Bring us a glad tomorrow,
Jesus, Lord. [Refrain]
