Lowell Mason (1792–1872)

Light of the wandering,
Strength of the weak,
Jesus, Thou Lamb of God,
Thee would we seek.

Refrain

Tender and faithful,
Loving and merciful,
Jesus, we plead with Thee;
Hear Thou our cry.

Come to the desolate,
Sad and oppressed;
Come to the broken heart
Sighing for rest.

Refrain

Come in our weariness,
Help us to pray;
Lord, we would follow Thee;
Show us the way.
