RETURN, O MY BELOVED, RETURN!††††

Great Savior, Advocate with God,

My only trust is in Your blood;

The virtue of Your death impart,

Speak peace to this poor sinnerís heart.

 

Christ Jesus, sin-atoning Lamb,

Bearer of all my guilt and blame,

Declare once more my sins forgivín,

And guide me safely on to heavín.

 

Speak by Your Spirit through Your Word,

Speak to my heart today, dear Lord.

Return, O Prince of Peace, return,

Great Comforter of all who mourn!

 

Return, O my Beloved, return,

And make Your gracious presence known!

My straying heart by grace arrest,

So shall my soul this day be blessed!
