1 Merciful Savior, come and be my comfort;
Vanish all idols in Thy holy presence;
Come and establish in my heart Thy kingdom,
Come, O Lord Jesus.

2 Come as the Bridegroom to the bride belov├Ęd,
Come Thou to strengthen faith and love and patience;
Be Thou a very present help in danger;
Come, O Lord Jesus.

3 Come in my pleasure, come to me in sorrow,
Come in the anguished hour of dire temptation,
Come and deliver me from sin and evil,
Come, O Lord Jesus.
