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

Refrain:
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]
