Come, Lord Jesus (DeFord)
Come, Lord Jesus, thou who bought us
With thy blood and with thy pain.
Thou who suffered to redeem us,
Come unto thine own to reign.
Make an end of war among us,
Bid all strife amid us cease.
Come, Lord Jesus
Come, and welcome, Prince of Peace.
Come, Lord Jesus; Thou hast taught us
Of thy kingdom that shall be
When our sorrows shall be vanquished.
Thus in hope we yearn for thee,
Fill our longing with thy presence;
Wipe away our every tear.
Come, Lord Jesus,
Answer all our hearts’ desire.
Come, Lord Jesus, to thy people
Who await the promised hour.
Come amid the clouds of heaven
In thy majesty and power.
We shall bow before thee gladly,
And with one accord shall sing,
Thou art Lord and God and King!
