Full Text

1 Are you burdened with sin and sadness?
Have you sorrows that no one can share?
Are you longing for joy and gladness?
O take it to God in prayer.

Refrain:
“Ask, and it shall be given you;
Seek, and ye shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened,
Be opened unto you.”

2 Are you weary, distressed, and lonely?
Are you sighing for comfort and rest?
None can help you but Jesus only,
None other can cheer and bless. [Refrain]

3 Do you want to be made a blessing
To the lost as you journey below?
If your being He is possessing,
His power He will bestow. [Refrain]

4 Through the riches of Christ in glory,
Every need He can fully supply;
If you walk in the light before Him,
No good thing will He deny. [Refrain]
