132. Art Thou Weary?

1 Art thou weary, art thou languid,
Art thou sore distress’d?
“Come to Me,” saith One, “and coming,
Be at rest.”

Hear the sweet voice of Jesus calling thee,
Calling so gently, lovingly, tenderly:
Come, thou weary, heavy-laden,
O come to Me and rest.

2 Hath He marks to lead me to Him,
If He be my guide?
“In His feet and hands are wound-prints
And His side.” [Chorus]

3 If I find Him, if I follow,
What my future here?
“Many a sorrow, many a labor,
Many a tear.” [Chorus]

4 If I ask Him to receive me,
Will He say me nay?
“Not till earth and not till heaven
Pass away.” [Chorus]
