1 Entreat me not to leave thee,
O pilgrim, on thy way
Thro' earthly storms and perils,
To realms of endless day:
The world with empty pleasures
No more can satisfy;
Where'er the Lord may lead thee,
With thee I'll live and die.

Refrain:
Entreat me not to leave thee,
Entreat me not to leave thee,
Entreat me not to leave thee,
With thee I'll live and die!

2 Entreat me not to leave thee,
For I would fain abide
With those whom God has chosen,
The faithful and the tried:
My soul goes forth with longing,
Turn not from me away;
Thine own shall be my people,
Thy God shall be my stay. [Refrain]

3 Forget me not, nor leave me,
O God! for I would rest
Within the arms of Jesus,
And on his loving breast:
With him to go rejoicing
Through conflict, toil, and strife;
To walk the vale of shadows,
And enter into life! [Refrain]
