|COME, Saviour Christ, our only Lord,
Thou great Interpreter divine,
Explain Thine own transmitted Word,
To teach and to inspire is Thine:
Thou only canst Thyself reveal,
Open Thy book, and loose its seal.
|2||Whate’er the ancient prophets spoke
Concerning Thee, O Christ, make known;
Chief subject of the sacred book,
Thou fillest all, and Thou alone:
Yet there our Lord we cannot see
Unless Thy Spirit give the key.
|3||Now, Jesus, now the veil remove
The folly of our darkened heart;
Unfold the wonders of Thy love,
The knowledge of Thyself impart:
Our earsour inmost souls we bow,
Speak, Lord, to us Thy servants now.
|Charles Wesley, 1707-88|
