Representative Text

1 We thank Thee, Lord, that pow’r is flowing,
Joy is coming, sorrow going;
Thy ransomed host is growing, growing,
But may the tide come in.

Chorus:
Let the tide come in,
Let the tide come in,
Let the cleansing billows sweep away our sin;
Let the tide come in,
Let the tide come in,
Oh, let the mighty tide come in.

2 Oh, let Thy cross win ev’ry nation,
Send the people Thy salvation!
Among them show Thy new creation,
Oh, may the tide come in. [Chorus]

3 Life’s precious hours are quickly flying,
Men are dying, ever dying!
Thy pleading Church is crying, crying,
Now may the tide come in. [Chorus]

4 We praise Thee for the tidings cheering,
Sings of conquest now appearing,
Thy day of victory is nearing,
Thank God! the tide comes in. [Chorus]
