Come Lord Jesus

Let today be the beginning of a life
Let today be the beginning of a life
That will last, a life that will last
You are faithful in the future as in the past

Come Lord Jesus Come Lord Jesus
We wait for your appearing-Your advent is nearing

You promised your return
Would be soon and very soon
For this new advent we yearn
Be it morning night or noon

Let today be the beginning of a life
Let today be the beginning of a life
Life that has no end
Life without pain or loss or sin

Come Lord Jesus Come Lord Jesus
We wait for your appearing-For your appearing

Bridge
This is our heart cry and heart song
It is for your very presence that we long
To see your face and gaze into your eyes
To have you draw us to your precious side

We abide in you each day
You are all that we hope for
Come quickly Lord we pray
To be with you forevermore

Let today be the beginning of a life
Let today be the beginning of a life
Life abundant, with no end
Life without pain or loss or sin

Come Lord Jesus Come Lord Jesus
We wait for your appearing-Your trumpet we will be hearing
Come Lord Jesus Come Lord Jesus
We wait for your appearing-Your judgment is nearing
