Representative Text

1 There is no dew on the mountains of Zion,
Dark are the paths where Thy glory was known;
We pray Thee, O Saviour, return to Thy dwelling,
O make our hearts Thine own.

Come, O come where Thy people are bending,
Come as once in the days of yore;
Come, O come with Thy Spirit’s returning,
Bless our souls once more, once more,
O bless our souls once more.

2 There is no word on the lips of Thy people,
Cold are the hearts that had loved Thee so long;
And harps that awoke to the praises of Jesus
Now wake no more in song. [Refrain]

3 Why should we sleep while the moments are flying?
Souls in their darkness and sin may be lost;
How can we forget they are living around us,
Bought at so great a cost? [Refrain]
