Jesu! speak to me in love,
Restless, storm tossed in my sin;
With Thy migh­ty voice, O Lord,
Thy great calm cre­ate with­in;
Bid the stor­my winds to cease,
Bid, O bid me go in peace.

To Thee, Je­su, do I fly,
Wakened from my soul’s dread sleep;
None but Thou can save me, Lord,
In this hour of ang­uish deep;
Thou alone canst give re­lease,
Bid, O bid me go in peace.

Weeping at Thy feet I fall,
Wearied, bur­dened, lone­ly, sad;
Thou dost bid me come, my Lord,
Thou alone canst make me glad;
Jesu, grant my soul re­lease,
Bid, O bid me go in peace.

Boldly at Thy throne of grace,
Lord, I now for­give­ness seek;
In Thy tender, pi­ty­ing love
To my soul Thy par­don speak.
Jesu! make my ang­uish cease,
Bid, O bid me go in peace.

Prince of Peace! Who in Thy death
Didst for me the ran­som pay,
Cleanse me in Thy pre­cious blood,
Give to me Thy peace to­day.
Now, Lord, grant my soul re­lease,
Now, Lord, bid me go in peace.
