Redeemed Hymn – 6 Come To Me, Lord, When First I Wake

“When wilt thou come unto me?”-Psalms 101:2

1  Come to me Lord, when first I wake,

As the faint lights of morning break;

Bid purest thoughts within me rise,

Like crystal dew-drops to the skies.

2 Come to me in the sultry noon,

Or earth’s low communing will soon

Of thy dear Face, eclipse the light,

And change my fairest day to night.

3 Come to me in the evening shade,

And if my heart from thee hath-strayed,

Oh brings it back, and from afar smile

On me like Thine ev’ning star.

4 Come to me in the midnight hour,

When sleep withhold its balmy pow’r

Me alone spirit find her rest,

 Like John, upon my saviour’s breast.

5  Come to me through life’s varied way.

And when its pulse cease to play then savior,

Bid me come to thee,

That where thou art, thy child may be.


4 By influence of the light divine let

Thy own light to others shine reflect all

Heav’ns propitious rays in

Ardent love and cheerful praise.


5 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,

And with the angels bear thy part,

Who all night long unwearied sing

High Praise to the eternal king


6 I wake, I wake,ye heav’nly choir,

May your devotion me inspire,

That I, like you my age may spend,

Like you may on my God attend
