Verse 1:
D
Jesus, we look to Thee,
G                        D
Thy promised presence claim;
Thou in the midst of us
Bm7            G              A
    Shall be assembled in Thy Name.
    Gmaj7    D
Thy Name, salvation is,
      F♯/A♯     Bm7
Which we here come to prove.
    G
Thy Name is life and health,
A   D         G    A        Gmaj7   A   G/B   A  
And peace and everlasting love.
Verse 2:
D
Not in the name of pride
G                   D
Or selfishness we meet;
                       Bm7
From nature's paths we turn aside
    G                   A
And worldy thoughts forget.
    Gmaj7     D
We meet, Thy grace to take
      F♯/A♯         Bm7
Which Thou hast freely given;
    G                    A    D
We meet on earth for Thy dear sake
     G      A       Gmaj7     A   G/B   A  
That we may meet in heaven.
Verse 3:
D
Present, we know Thou art;
G                     D
But, O Thyself, reveal!
                      Bm7
Now, Lord, let every waiting heart
    G                A
Thy mighty comfort feel.
  Gmaj7     D
O may Thy quickening voice
    F♯/A♯        Bm7
The death of sin remove,
    G                    A  D
And bid our inmost souls rejoice
   G       A       Bm
In hope of perfect love.
  Gmaj7     D
O may Thy quickening voice
    F♯/A♯         Bm7
The death of sin remove,
    G                    A  D
And bid our inmost souls rejoice
   G       A        Gmaj7   A   G   A   
In hope of perfect love.

Jesus we look to Thee
Thy promised presence claim
Thou in the midst of us shall be
Assembled in Thy Name
Thy Name salvation is
Which here we come to prove
Thy Name is life and health and peace
And everlasting love

Not in the name of pride
Or selfishness we meet
From nature's paths we turn aside
And worldly thoughts forget
We meet Thy grace to take
Which Thou hast freely giv'n
We meet on earth for Thy dear sake
That we may meet in heav'n

Present we know Thou art
But O Thyself reveal
Now Lord let every waiting heart
The mighty comfort feel
O may Thy quickening voice
The death of sin remove
And bid our inmost souls rejoice
In hope of perfect love

Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
