Representative Text

1 “Come unto Me and I will give you rest;”
What blessed words to weary ones addressed!
They come from Him who knew the depth of woe,
And felt for sinners as none here below.

2 “Come unto Me;” yes, come in all your sin!
Through Jesus blood the vile may enter in,
May come to God, by perfect grace thus led,
Assured that for themselves that blood was shed.

3 “Come unto Me;” yes, God Himself says “Come!”
He sees afar and runs to welcome home
Unworthy sinners, who have nought to plead
But God's own love, and their exceeding need.

4 “Come unto Me;” oh, blessed open door
For those who but for Christ had hoped no more!
Oh, love of God! told out in full extent,
When Jesus to those depths of darkness went!
