Hymn/Song Information

Lord come away why dost thou stay




Lord ! come away! Why dost Thou stay ?
Thy road is ready ; and Thy paths made straight
With longing expectation wait
The consecration of Thy beauteous feet!
Ride on triumphantly ! Behold, we lay
Our lusts and proud wills in Thy way !


Hosanna! Welcome, to our hearts !
Lord, here Thou hast a temple too ; and full as dear
As that of Sion, and as full of sin :
othing but thieves and robbers dwell therein :
Enter, and chase them forth, and cleanse the floor!
Crucify them, that they may never more
Profane that holy place
Where Thou hast chose to set Thy face !
And then, if our stiff tongues shall be
Mute in the praises of Thy Deity,
The stones out of the temple wall
Shall cry aloud, and call
Hosanna ! and Thy glorious footsteps greet! Amen !
