1 Come unto Me, ye weary, heavy-laden,
All ye who by much care are sore opprest,
Come unto Me, come bring thine ev’ry burden,
Bring thy tired heart, and I will give it rest.

Come unto Me,
Come unto Me,
Come unto Me, ye weary;
Come unto Me,
Come bring thine ev’ry burden,
And I will give you rest.

2 Come unto Me, I know the paths you travel,
Weary oft times, thy plodding feet must be,
Hark is thy journey, few are thy comforters,
Come to thy Rest, my child—‘tis found in Me. [Refrain]

3 Burdens are lain on thee by weaker spirits,
Thou like thy Lord must oft be sorely prest
Into a service full of strain and worry,
Yet come to Me, for sympathy and rest. [Refrain]

4 Come tho’ thy needs be felt in vale or mountain,
Come to the “secret place,” I will meet you there.
Come tell to Me the untold stress and longing,
Come to the Father-heart, and He will share. [Refrain]
