482. Come unto Me, Ye Weary

1 "Come unto me, ye weary, and I will give you rest."
O blessed voice of Jesus which comes to hearts oppressed!
It tells of benediction, of pardon, grace, and peace,
of joy that hath no ending, of love which cannot cease.

2 "Come unto me, dear children, and I will give you light."
O loving voice of Jesus which comes to cheer the night!
Our hearts were filled with sadness, and we had lost our way;
but morning brings us gladness, and songs the break of day.

3 "Come unto me, ye fainting, and I will give you life."
O peaceful voice of Jesus which comes to end our strife!
The foe is stern and eager, the fight is fierce and long;
but thou hast made us mighty, and stronger than the strong.

4 "And whosoever cometh I will not cast him out."
O patient love of Jesus which drives away our doubt;
which calls us, very sinners, unworthy though we be
of love so free and boundless, to come, dear Lord, to thee!
