JESUS, we look to Thee,
   Thy promised presence claim;
Thou in the midst of us shalt be,
    Assembled in Thy name.
2      Thy name salvation is,
    Which now we come to prove;
Thy name is life and health and peace
    And everlasting love.
3      We meet the grace to take
    Which Thou hast freely given;
We meet on earth for Thy dear sake,
    That we may meet in Heaven.
4      Present we know Thou art,
    But O, Thyself reveal!
Now, Lord, let every waiting heart
    Thy mighty comfort feel.
5      O, may Thy quickening voice
    The death of sin remove;
And bid our inmost souls rejoice
    In hope of perfect love.
Charles Wesley, 1707-88
