Jesus, We Look to Thee

Jesus, we look to Thee,
Thy promis’d Presence claim,
Thou in the midst of Us shalt be
Assembled in thy Name:
Thy Name Salvation is,
(Which now we come to prove)
Thy Name is Life, and Joy, and Peace,
And everlasting Love.

Not in the Name of Pride,
Or Selfishness we meet,
From Nature's Paths we turn aside,
And worldly Thoughts forget.
We meet, the Grace to take
Which Thou hast freely given,
We meet on Earth for thy dear Sake,
That we may meet in Heaven.

Present we know Thou art,
But Oh! Thyself reveal;
Now, Lord, let every bounding Heart
The mighty Comfort feel:
Oh! Might thy quickning Voice
The Death of Sin remove,
And bid our inmost Souls rejoice
In Hope of perfect Love.

Thou wilt to us make known
Thy Nature and thy Name,
Us who our Utmost Saviour own
From every Touch of Blame,
From every Word and Deed,
From every Thought unclean,
Our Jesus, 'till our Souls are freed
From all Remains of Sin.
