1. O Jesus, Lord and Savior,
The soul’s eternal king,
Grant now Thy grace and favor,
While we Thy praises sing!

Come, Savior, come,
And give Thy Spirit course,
O feed us now and evermore,
From love’s eternal source!

2. Far, far from Thee, our Savior,
Our youthful steps might roam,
By sin and darkness sink in death,
Nor reach our heav’nly home. [Refrain]

3. Within Thy Church, Lord Jesus,
O let our souls aspire,
To see Thy Spirit’s holy light
And feel celestial fire! [Refrain]

4. Abide with us, Lord Jesus,
Fill us with holy zeal;
Give us to think as angels think,
And feel as angels feel. [Refrain]
