Johann Scheffler, 1657; German text
Jesus, Savior, come to me;|
Let me ever be with Thee,
Come and nevermore depart,
Thou who reignest in my heart.
2. Lord, for Thee I ever sigh,
3. Earthly joys can give no peace,
4. All that makes the angels glad,
5. Take Thou all away from me,|
I shall still thus minded be,
Thou who madest me Thine own
Shalt be all my Joy alone.
6. None shall claim my heart beside,
7. Thou alone, my God and Lord,
8. Come, then, Lamb for sinners slain,
9. Patiently I wait Thy Day;|
For this gift, O Lord, I pray,
That, when death shall come to me,
My dear Jesus Thou wilt be.
