Representative Text

1. Come to the fountain of mercy,
Come to the haven so blest;
Ye who are burden'd and weary,
Come, and in Jesus find rest.
Come, come, come, come,
Come, and in Jesus find rest.

2. Come, while the Spirit invites you,
Yield to its pleading to-day;
Turn not aside from its warning,
Grieve not the Spirit away.
Come, come, come, come,
Grieve not the Spirit away.

3. Gently the Saviour is calling,
Weary one! "Come unto me,"
"Cast upon me all thy burden;
Rest I will give unto thee."
Come, come, come, come,
Rest he will give unto thee."

4. Bring, then, thy burden to Jesus,
To him thy sorrow confide;
Trusting alone in his merit,
Come, and in Jesus abide.
Come, come, come, come,
Come, and in Jesus abide.

5. Safely in Jesus abiding,
Trusting in him all thy days;
Ever his promise will cheer thee,
"Lo! I am with you always."
Come, come, come, come;
He will be with you always.
