Representative Text

1 Jesus, Savior, pass not by,
Pass not by, pass not by;
Lo, we join, as one, to cry:
Bless us also, pass not by,
Lord, fulfill Thy promise now,
Pour Thy Spirit while we bow;
Turn to us, as one we cry,
"Pass not by, pass not by."

2 We have heard Thy footsteps near,
Pass not by, pass not by;
Pause, behold the pleading tear,
Listen to the longing sigh;
Jesus, Savior, come at last,
Lest, in blessing, we be passed;
When Thy Spirit is so nigh,
"Pass not by, pass not by."

3 Prostrate in Thy path we lie,
Pass not by, pass not by;
Lest our very faith should die,
Lord, we perish, pass not by;
To Thy garments we will cling,
All our need before Thee bring;
Son of David, hear our cry,
"Pass not by, pass not by."

4 Lord, we cannot let Thee go,
Pass not by, pass not by;
In our midst Thy presence show,
Till Thou bless us we will cry,
Breathe on us, oh, breathe, we pray,
Tarry not, Lord, come today;
While we wait, and watch and cry,
"Pass not by, pass not by."
