Come, Lord Jesus

Representative Text

Come, Lord Jesus, come.
Come and fill my heart with your life.
Hold me close, Lord, hold me tight,
and come, Lord Jesus, come.

1 Where there's despair in life, Lord,
let me be your voice of hope.
Where there's injury, Lord,
let me be your voice of peace. [Refrain]

2 Where there is sadness
let me be your comfort and your joy.
When there's fear in our hearts
let me be a sign of faith. [Refrain]
