Jesus, Jesus, visit me

Full Text

1 Jesus, Jesus! visit 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! visit me.

3 Thou alone, my gracious Lord!
Art my shield and great reward;
All my hope, my Saviour thou,—
To thy sovereign will I bow.

4 Patiently I wait the day;
For this gift alone I pray,
That, when death shall visit me,
Thou my Light and Life wilt be.

Dunn, Robinson Porter, D.D., an American Baptist, born in 1825; was for some time Professor in Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island; and died Aug. 28, 1867. His hymns, mainly translated from the Latin and other sources, include, "No, no, it is not dying"; "Jesus, Jesus, visit me"; "Jesus, our fainting spirits cry"; "We sinners, Lord, with earnest heart" (part of “Jesus, our fainting spirits cry," q.v.). These translations appeared in some of the American hymn-books, and are in common use. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)… Go to person page >
