Representative Text

1 Jesus, Jesus, come to me;
How my soul longs after Thee!
When, my best, my dearest Friend,
Shall our separation end?

2 Lord, my longings never cease;
Without Thee I find no peace;
'Tis my constant cry to Thee,--
Jesus, Jesus, come to me!

3 Mean the joys of earth appear,
All below is dark and drear;
Naught but Thy belov├ęd voice
Can my wretched heart rejoice.

4 Thou alone, my gracious Lord,
Art my shield and great reward;
All my hope, my Savior Thou,--
To Thy sovereign will I bow.

5 Come and dwell within my heart;
Purge its sin, and heal its smart;
See, I ever cry to Thee,--
Jesus, Jesus, come to me!

6 Patiently I wait Thy day;
For this gift alone I pray,
That, when death shall visit me,
Thou my light and life wilt be.
