Whenever I long to see your face


  • Whenever I long to see your face,
    whenever I long for your embrace,
    I call on your name, and you are there,
    and my burden you will share.
  • All our hopes and all our fears,
    you turn to laughter all our tears;
    you are the fire of love within,
    your death freed us from sin.
  • O Lord Jesus, we proclaim
    your kingdom and your name:
    Christ our Saviour,
    Christ our Lord; sing Emmanuel, liv-ing Lord.
