Representative Text

1 Come with all thy sorrow,
Weary, wandering soul;
Come to him who loves thee,
He will make thee whole.

There is rest in Jesus,
Sweet, sweet rest,
There is rest in Jesus,
Sweet, sweet rest.

2 He thy strength in weakness,
Will thy refuge be;
Cast on him thy burden,
He will care for thee. [Chorus]

3 Come, in faith believing,
To his will resigned;
Ask, and he will give thee;
Seek, and thou shalt find. [Chorus]

4 See the door of Mercy,
Wouldst thou enter there?
Knock, and he will open;
Lo! the key is prayer. [Chorus]
