Art thou weak, afflicted soul

Full Text

1 Art thou weak, afflicted soul?
I am strong to make thee whole;
Art thou sick and hast no cure?
I am thy Physician sure.

I am ready at thy side,
At thy right and left to guide,
I am life, and love, and peace;
I am joy which ne'er shall cease.

2 Art thou fainting on the road?
I am near to bear thy load;
Art thou hungry, thirsty, poor?
I am rich to bless thy store. [Chorus]

3 Art thou much with grief opprest?
I am come to give you rest;
Art thou weary of thy sin?
I am peace to thee within. [Chorus]
