O come sweet Jesus enter in,
My heart o’erwhelm and change;
Awake my soul, remove my sin,
My enemies avenge.
To love sweet Jesus as you do,
My God in everything;
My praise and prayers all made unto,
You, as an offering.
To be sweet Jesus most sincere,
In all we do for you;
To hold, esteem, and love you dear,
You always to pursue.
To have sweet Jesus constantly,
A heart ablaze with love;
Baptised with holy fire each day,
Descend from heaven above.
(Tune; Belmont; Martyrdom; CM)
