1 Here from the world we turn,
Jesus to seek;
Here may his loving voice
Tenderly speak!
Jesus, our dearest Friend,
While at thy feet we bend,
O let thy smile descend!
'Tis thee we seek.

2 Come, Holy Comforter,
Presence Divine,
Now in our longing hearts
Graciously shine;
O for thy mighty pow'r!
O for a blessed show'r,
Filling this hallowed hour
With joy divine!

3 Saviour, thy work revive:
Here may we see
Those who are dead in sin
Quickened by thee;
Come to our hearts tonight,
Make ev'ry burden light;
Cheer thou our waiting sight;
We long for thee.
