Art thou weary, art thou languid

Representative Text

1 Are you weary, are you languid,
are you sore distress'd?
"Come to me," says One, "and, coming,
be at rest."

2 Has he marks to lead me to him,
if he be my Guide?
"In his feet and hands are wound-prints,
and his side."

3 Is there diadem, as Monarch,
that his brow adorns?
"Yes, a crown, in very surety,
but of thorns."

4 If I find him, if I follow,
what his promise here?
"Many a sorrow, many a labor,
many a tear."

5 If I still hold closely to him,
what has he at last?
"Sorrow vanquished, labor ended,
Jordan passed."

6 If I ask him to receive me,
will he say me nay?
"Not till earth and not till heaven
pass away."

7 Finding, foll'wing, keeping, struggling,
is he sure to bless?
"Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs
answer yes."

The father died in 1823, and the boy's early training was entirely under the direction of his mother, his deep attachment for whom is shown by the fact that, not long before his death, he wrote of her as "a mother to whom I owe more than I can express." He was educated at Sherborne Grammar School, and was afterwards… Go to person page >
