1 Come in, O Lord, drive out the gloom,
And make my heart a sunlit room,
Chase all the shades of night away
And make it bright and light as flee.
Come in, come in,
Chase all the shades of night away.
Come in, come,
And make my heart as light as day.
2 Come in, O Lord, ‘mid grief I’m bow’d,
Hangs o’er my head a heavy cloud;
let me lift up my eyes to Thee!
One glimpse can make the darkness flee. [Refrain]
3 Come in, O Lord, I’d rest me here
Till all this anguish disappear,
With Thee communion sweet I’d hold
Till ev’ry cloud has backward roll’d. [Refrain]
4 Come in, O Lord, yes, do come in,
My heart may hold some cherished sin;
I’d have Thee cast the idol out,
I’d have Thee put the sin to rout! [Refrain]
