1. "Come unto Me," it is the Savior's voice,
The Lord of life, who bids thy heart rejoice;
O weary heart, with heavy cares oppressed,
"Come unto Me," and I will give you rest.
"Come unto Me," "come unto Me,"
"Come unto Me, and I will give you rest,"
I will give you rest,...
I will give you rest....
2. O dying man, with guilt and sin dismayed,
With conscience wakened, of thy God afraid;
'Twixt hopes and fears--O, end the anxious strife,
"Come unto Me," and I will give you life. [Refrain]
3. Rest, peace, and life, the flow'rs of deathless bloom,
The Savior give us, not beyond the tomb--
But here, and now, on earth, some glimpse is giv'n
Of joys which wait us thro' the gates of heav'n. [Refrain]
