Lord Jesus, come; for here

Representative Text

Lord Jesus, come! for here
Our path through wilds is laid;
We watch, as for the dayspring near,
Amid the breaking shade.

Lord Jesus, come! for hosts
Meet on the battle-plain;
Our holiest hopes seem vainest boasts,
And tears are shed like rain.

Lord Jesus, come! the slave
Still bears his heavy chains;
Their daily bread the hungry crave,
While teem the fruitful plains.

Hark! herald voices near
Lead on thy happier day;
Come, Lord, and our hosannas hear!
We wait to strew thy way.

Come, as in days of old,
With words of grace and power;
Gather us all within thy fold,
And let us stray no more!

Martineau, Harriet, was born at Norwich, June 12, 1802, and died at Ambleside, June 27, 1876. Best known as the writer of Illustrations of Political Economy, Retrospect of Western Travel; two novels, Deerbrook and The Hour and the Man; Eastern Life, Past and Present; a History of the Thirty Years’ Peace, and various other works. Her first publication was a book of Devotional Exercises, with hymns appended to each Exercise, and her hymns also belong to what she speaks of in the Autobiography as her "Unitarian" period. Five of them appeared in A Collection of Hymns for Christian Worship, printed in 1831 for the congregation of Eustace Street, Dublin, and edited by her brother, the Rev. James Martineau. 1.
