Full Text

1 Are thy burdens very heavy,
Almost more than thou canst bear?
Take them to thy loving Saviour,
He His perfect strength will share.

Jesus, Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
Thou canst heal the sick and weary,
Thou wilt take our ev’ry care.

2 Art thou sad and heavy-laden,
With the mem’ry of the sin?
Thou canst have a full, free pardon,
If thoul’t let the Saviour in. [Refrain]

3 Jesus seeks to gain admittance,
He has often sought before;
But the hinges have brown rusty,
And He finds a fast closed door. [Refrain]

4 Open wide the sin-barred entrance,
To this kind and heav’nly guest;
He the darkness soon will banish,
And will give thee perfect rest. [Refrain]
