Representative Text

1 Are you heavy laden, are you sad at heart?
Is your spirit weary with the sinner’s part?
There is One who heedeth e’en the sparrow’s fall,
And you’ll find Him waiting, when He hears you call.

Refrain:
He is waiting, He is waiting,
With hope for every loss,
If you’ll only let Him know,
He will make you white as snow,
In the shadow, in the shadow of the cross.

2 He is ever faithful, He is ever true,
He is ever holding out His hand to you.
Won’t you let Him help you in the bitter fight?
He will ever lead you in the paths of right. [Refrain]

3 Is your burden greater than your strength can bear?
Is your pathway darkened by the clouds of care?
Take your troubles to Him—lay them at His feet,
For there’s naught but kindness at the mercy seat. [Refrain]
