Here from the world we turn, Jesus to seek;
Here may His loving voice tenderly speak!
Jesus, our dearest friend, while at Thy feet we bend,
O let Thy smile descend! ’Tis Thee we seek.

Come, holy Comforter, presence divine,
Now in our longing hearts graciously shine;
O for Thy mighty power! O for a blessèd shower,
Filling this hallowed hour with joy divine!

Savior, Thy work revive; here may we see
Those who are dead in sin quickened by Thee;
Come to our hearts tonight, make every burden light;
Cheer Thou our waiting sight; we long for Thee.
