Lord Jesus, come! Nor let us longer roam
Afar from Thee, and that bright place
Where we shall see Thee face to face.
Lord Jesus, come! Lord Jesus, come!

Lord Jesus, come! Thine absence here we mourn:
No joy we know apart from Thee,
No sorrow in Thy presence see.
Lord Jesus, come! Lord Jesus, come!

Lord Jesus, Come!
And claim us as Thine own;
With longing hearts the path we tread,
Which Thee on high to glory led,
Lord Jesus, come! Lord Jesus, come!

Lord Jesus, come! And take Thy people home:
That all Thy flock, so scattered here,
With Thee in glory may appear.
Lord Jesus, come! Lord Jesus, come!
