Full Text

1 Sad and weary, lone and dreary,
Lord, I would thy call obey;
Thee believing, Christ receiving,
I would come to thee today.

I am coming, I am coming,
Coming, Saviour, to be blest;
I am coming, I am coming,
Coming, Lord, to thee for rest.

2 Thou, the Holy, meek and lowly,
Jesus, unto thee I come;
Keep me ever, let me never
From thy blessed keeping roam. [Refrain]

3 Here abiding, in thee hiding,
Seeks my weary soul to rest,
Till the dawning of the morning,
When I wake among the blest. [Refrain]

4 Be thou near me, keep and cheer me,
Thro’ life’s dark and stormy way;
Turn my sadness into gladness,
Turn my darkness into day. [Refrain]
