Light of the Wandering

Representative Text

1 Light of the wandering,
Strength of the weak,
Jesus, Thou Lamb of God,
Thee would we seek.

Tender and pitiful,
Loving and merciful,
Jesus, we plead with Thee;
Hear Thou our cry.

2 Come to the desolate,
Sad and oppressed;
Come to the broken heart
Sighing for rest. [Refrain]

3 Come in our weariness,
Help us to pray;
Lord, we would follow Thee;
Show us the way. [Refrain]
