Come, Lord Jesus, Our Redeemer

Full Text

1. Come, Lord Jesus, our Redeemer;
Come and listen to our prayer!
Come and bless us with Your presence
At this table we prepare—
Alleluia, alleluia,
Where Your honor we declare.

2. Send to us Your Spirit, Holy;
Send to us Your loving grace;
Send to us Your invitation
To become Your dwelling-place.
Alleluia, alleluia,
Lord, we ever You embrace.

3. Praise the God of our Redemption;
Praise Him whom we glorify.
Praise the Father and the Spirit,
Praise the Son of God most high—
Alleluia, alleluia,
Praise, extol and magnify.
