Say, With What Salutations Lyrics

by Common Hymnal in Hymns

1 Say with what salutations
Shall I Thine advent greet?
Desire of all the nations,
My Joy and Refuge meet!
O Jesus, Jesus! lead me
On by Thy blessed light,
Teach me whate'er delights Thee
To understand aright.

2 With palms doth Zion meet Thee,
Spreads branches in the way;
To raise my soul to greet Thee
Glad psalms I’ll sing to-day.
My heart shall bloom forever
With joys and praises new,
And from Thy Name shall never
Withhold the honor due.

3 What hast Thou e’er neglected
For my good here below?
When heart and soul dejected,
Were sunk in deepest woe,
When from Thy presence hidden,
Where peace and pleasures are,
Thou camest, and hast bidden
Me joy again, my Star!

4 In bitter bondage lying,
Thou com’st and sett’st me free,
’Neath scorn and shame when sighing,
Thou com’st and raisest me.
Thy grace high honor gives me,
Abundance doth bestow,
That wastes not, nor deceives me
As earthly riches do.

5 No other impulse led Thee
To leave Thy throne above,
Upon Thine errand sped Thee,
But world-embracing love!
A love that deeply feeleth
The wants and woes of men,
No tongue its fulness telleth,
It passeth human ken.

6 Sin’s debt and mighty burden,
Let not Thy heart affright;
The Lord will freely pardon,
His grace will cover quite.
He comes! He comes! salvation
Proclaiming everywhere,
Secures His chosen nation
Their heritage so fair.

7 Thy foes, why should they move Thee?
Their wiles and rage are vain,
Thy Savior, who doth love thee,
Will scatter them again.
O come, Thou Son, and lead us
To everlasting light,
Up to Thy mansions guide us
Of glory and delight.
