Tune: Arranged by Amzi Chapin, 1813
Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1742
Meter: Long Particular Meter (8,8,8,8,8,8)
Come, O Thou traveler unknown,
Whom still I hold, but cannot see;
My company before is gone,
And I am left alone with Thee.
With Thee all night I mean to stay,
And wrestle 'till the break of day.

In vain Thou strugglest to get free,
I never will unloose my hold;
Art Thou the Man that died for me?
The secret of Thy love unfold.
Wrestling, I will not let Thee go,
'Till I Thy name, Thy nature know.
