EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS




Come, Lord, and tarry not;
Bring the long looked for day;
O why these years of waiting here,
These ages of decay?


Come! For the good are few;
They lift the voice in vain;
Faith waxes fainter on the earth,
And love is on the wane.


Come, for Thy saints still wait;
Daily ascends their sigh;
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come”;
Does Thou not hear the cry?


Come, for creation groans,
Impatient of Thy stay,
Worn out with these long years of ill,
These ages of delay.


Come, for love waxes cold,
Its steps are faint and slow;
Faith now is lost in unbelief,
Hope’s lamp burns dim and low.


Home in Thy glorious might,
Come with the iron rod,
Scattering Thy foes before Thy face,
Most mighty Son of God!


Come, for the corn is ripe;
Put in thy sickle now,
Reap the great harvest of the earth:
Sower and Reaper thou.


Come, and make all things new,
Build up this ruined earth;
Restore our faded Paradise,
Creation’s second birth.


Come, and begin Thy reign
Of everlasting peace;
Come, take the kingdom to Thyself,
Great King of Righteousness.
