1  Come Thou, O come:
Sweetest and kindliest,
Giver of tranquil rest
Unto the weary soul;
In all anxiety
With power from heaven on high

2  Come Thou, O come:
Help in the hour of need,
Strength of the broken reed,
Guide of each lonely one;
Orphans' and widows' stay,
Who tread in life's hard way

3  Come Thou, O come:
Glorious and shadow-free,
Star of the stormy sea,
Light of the tempest-tost;
Harbour our souls to save
When hope upon the wave
Is lost.

4  Come Thou, O come:
Joy in life's narrow path,
Hope in the hour of death,
Come, blessed Spirit, come;
Lead Thou us tenderly,
Till we shall find with Tee
Our home.
