Three Comings

Let me love thee, O Christ,
in thy first coming,
when thou wast made man, for love of man,
and for love of me.

Let me love thee, O Christ,
in thy second coming,
when with an inconceivable love
thou standest and knockest at the door,
and wouldest enter into the souls of men,
and into mine.

Plant in my soul, O Christ, thy likeness of love;
that when by death thou callest,
it may be ready,
and burning,
to come unto thee.
