Lord Jesus! come, for here 

Our path through wilds is laid,

We watch us for the day-spring near,

A-mid the break-ing shade-

A-mid the break-ing shade.

Lord Jesus! come; for hosts 

Meet on the battle plain;

The patriot mourns, the tyrant boasts,

And tears are shed like rain.

Lord Jesus! come; for still

Vice shouts her maniac mirth;

The famished crave in vain their fill,

While teems the fruitful earth.

Hark! herald voices near,

Lead on thy happier day;

Come, Lord, and our hosannas hear;

We wait to strew thy way.

Come as in days of old,

With words of grace and power

Gather us all within thy fold,

And never leave us more.
