1 O Savior! Is Thy promise fled?
Nor longer may Thy grace endure,
To heal the sick, and raise the dead,
And preach Thy Gospel to the poor?
2 Come, Jesus! Come, return again:
With brighter beams Thy servants bless,
Who long to hail Thy perfect reign,
And share Thy kingdom’s happiness.
3 A feeble race, by passion driven,
In darkness and in doubt we roam,
And lift our anxious eyes to Heaven,
Our hope, our harbor, and our home.
4 Come, Jesus! come; and as of yore,
Thy prophet went to clear the way,
A harbinger Thy feet before,
A dawning to Thy brighter day.
5 So, ere again we see Thy face,
Our stony hearts for truth prepare;
Sow in our souls the seed of grace,
Then come and reap Thy harvest there.
