Come, Lord Jesus,
Come as King.
Rule in our hearts,
Come as love.
Rule in our minds,
Come as peace.
Rule in our actions,
Come as power.
Rule in our days,
Come as joy.
Rule in our darkness,
Come as light.
Rule in our bodies,
Come as health.
Rule in our labours,
Come as hope.
Thy Kingdom come
Among us.

David Adam,  English minister who wrote prayers after the Celtic pattern
The Book of a Thousand Prayers

See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power,
    and he rules with a mighty arm.
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.
He tends his flock like a shepherd:
    He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
    he gently leads those that have young.

One thought on “Come, Lord Jesus

  1. Eric. I suspect that you set up all these blogs before your trip. Today’s was spectacular and moving from Jillian’s artwork, to the prayer and scripture passage from Isa.40, to the YouTube posting of the choral number. Powerful stuff to set the tone for my day. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Eric.
