O Come and Sing His Praises

Wherever I may wander, Wherever I may be (Fraser)

Author: Maud Fraser
Tune: [Wherever I may wander]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Wherever I may wander,
Wherever I may be,
Oh! dying love of Jesus,
I pray Thee, follow me.

Refrain:
O come and sing His praises,
Ye ransomed of the Lord;
Sing forth the love of Jesus,
Who saves us by His blood.

2 When sunshine streams upon me,
When friends beloved are near,
Oh! dying love of Jesus,
Do Thou be doubly dear. [Refrain]

3 And when my bark is drifting,
Upon a stormy sea,
Oh! dying love of Jesus,
Speak peace and calm to me. [Refrain]

4 His dying love has conquered
The heart he came to win,
With all my soul I love Him,
And hate my every sin. [Refrain]

5 And now my heart is dwelling,
Where Jesus dwells above,
And over me He spreadeth
The banner of His love. [Refrain]
