1 Together met in Jesus’ name,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
Today as yesterday the same,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
He bears the faintest sigh for rest,
The weakest throb of aching breast;
Accept Him as a welcome guest,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here.

2 To give the guilty conscience rest,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
To soothe the heart by grief oppressed,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
The weary, heavy laden soul
Its burdens may upon Him roll;
He waits to take and bear the whole,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here.

3 Your sins and guilt before Him lay,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
The worst He will not turn away,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here;
For you His precious blood was shed,
In death for you He bowed His head,
His arms of love are round you spread,
Jesus is here, Jesus is here.
