Representative Text

1 Bring Christ your broken life, So marred by sin,
He will create anew, Make whole again;
Your empty, wasted years He will restore,
And your iniquities Remember no more.

2 Bring Him your ev'ry care if great or small--
Whatever troubles you--O bring it all!
Bring Him the haunting fears, The nameless dread,
Thy heart He will relieve, And lift up thy head.

3 Bring Him your weariness, Receive His rest;
Weep out your blinding tears Upon His breast;
His love is wonderful, His pow'r is great,
"And none that trust in Him Shall be desolate."

4 Blest Savior of us all! Almighty Friend!
His presence shall be ours Unto the end;
Without Him life would be How dark, how drear!
But with Him morning breaks, And heaven is near!

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
