Representative Text

1 We have heard Thy call, blessed Saviour,
Ringing over mountain and plain,
It has touched our hearts by its accents,
And no longer shalt Thou call in vain.

Chorus:
We are coming, we are coming,
We are coming, Saviour, at Thy call;
We are coming, O receive us;
We are coming, O forgive us;
We are coming, coming at Thy call.

2 We are coming with heartfelt sorrow,
That we came not long, long ago;
That we strayed so far in the desert,
Where we found nothing but sin and woe. [Chorus]

3 We are coming, truly repentant;
All our inmost thoughts Thou dost know;
O forgive our long faithless wan’drings,
And Thy pardon graciously bestow. [Chorus]

4 We are coming, O blessed Saviour,
On Thy promises would we rest;
Trusting in Thy grace and Thy favor,
May our hearts now be supremely blest. [Chorus]
