All ye a certain cure who seek

Representative Text

1 All ye a certain cure who seek
In trouble and distress,
Whatever griefs the spirit break,
Or sins the soul oppress:

2 Jesus, who gave Himself for men,
Upon the cross to die,
For you unlocks His heart; O then
Unto that heart draw nigh!

3 Ye hear His gracious voice and free,
Ye hear His summons blest:
"O all ye weary, come to me,
And I will give you rest!"

Amen.
