Come to me Lord

This hymn of petition was written by Irish Roman Catholic priest John Moloney (1916-2014).

It was was published in the Veritas Hymnal, and this gives the tune source as Messa del Fanmciullo.

No on-line examples have been found, although the lyrics were included a in home-made hymnal from the 1970/80s used by the charismatic movement.   It is now popular in some African churches.



Come to me Lord, and live within me
Fill my soul with your life and love.

Free from sin this day Lord, preserve me,
True to your word give me your peace.

Bring quick relief to all who suffer,
Comfort and strength to all who mourn.

You are the vine,and we are the branches,
Though you are many, in You we are one.
