1 Broken hearted, weep no more!
Hear what comfort he hath spoken,
Smoking flax who ne’er hath quench’d,
Bruised reed, who ne’er hath broken:—
Ye who wander here below,
Heavy-laden as you go;
Come, with grief and sin oppressed,
Come to me and be at rest;
Come, with grief and sin oppressed,
Come to me and be at rest.

2 Lamb of Jesus’ blood-bought flock,
Brought again from sin and straying,
Hear the Shepherd’s gentle voice,—
‘Tis a true and faithful saying;
Greater love how can there be,
Than to yield up life for thee?
Bought with pang, and tear and sigh,
Turn and live; why will ye die?
Bought with pang, and tear and sigh,
Turn and live; why will ye die?

3 Broken hearted, weep no more;
Far from consolation flying;
He who calls hath felt thy wound,
Seen thy weeping, heard thy sighing;
Bring thy broken heart to me;
Welcome off’ring it shall be;
Streaming tears and bursting sighs,
Mine accepted sacrifice;
Streaming tears and bursting sighs,
Mine accepted sacrifice.
