1 Jesus, I long for your blessed communion,
Yearning possesses my heart and my mind.
Break down all barriers that hinder our union,
Draw me to you, O Redeemer most kind!
Show me now clearly my need that is crying,
Show me the pain of the wrongs that I do.
That unto sin I may daily be dying
And in the Spirit live only for you.
2 Quicken my soul thro' your blood and your merit,
Send me your spirit and help me to prove
I am your captive in soul and in spirit;
Lead me and draw me to you with your love.
Come let my heart from all idols be severed,
So that you only can dwell in my soul.
Grant me your peace that continues forever,
Peace beyond all I can fathom or know.
3 Jesus, when shall I find rest in your haven?
Take up my burden, Lord lift it from me!
When shall I see you, my Savior in heaven?
Waken and quiet the wild, troubled sea!
O loving Jesus, come help me, be speedy;
Hide not your face from me, always be near.
You are the wealth of the inwardly needy.
Come, fill my heart with your mercy and cheer.
4 Merciful Jesus, I pray, hear my pleading;
Do not forget what you said in your word,
"Ask and receive; you will find when you seek me."
This you have said and your people have heard.
I, like the woman at Cana, keep pleading,
Crying to you till my longing is stilled.
And you have spoken with grace to my needing,
"Amen, yes, Amen: be done as you will!"
