Come My Savior Come


Everywhere I look
I see you and me
The poor;
Easy to praise
On the mountain-top
But in the valley?
Every time I feel insignificant,
I see you on the tree;
And when I touch the sores,
I eat your Body;
When I am thirsty,
I surely drink from the Cup,
But when I hear the Sound,
I know the Work is done;
And when I am missing you,
I pray for you
To come;
Come
Come
Come my Savior
Come.
