Representative Text

1 Jesus, Thou dear redeeming Lord,
Thy blessing we implore;
Open the door to preach Thy word,
The great, effectual door.

2 Gather the outcasts in, and save

And let them now acceptance have,
And know their gracious hour.

3 Lover of souls! Thou know'st to prize
What Thou hast bought so dear;
Come, then, and in Thy people's eyes
With all Thy wounds appear!

4 Appear, as when of old confest
The suff'ring Son of God;
And let us see thee in Thy vest
But newly dipt in blood.

5 The hardness of our hearts remove,
Thou who for sin hast died;
Show us the tokens of Thy love,
Thy feet, Thy hands, Thy side.
