Representative Text

1 Come with thy burdens and come with thy fears,
Come with thy weakness and come with thy tears;
Come with thy sins and thy sorrows confessed,
Come to the wonderful Giver of rest.

Come, come, come unto Me,
Come, come, come unto Me;
Ye who are burdened and sorely oppressed,
Come unto Me and find rest.

2 Come from the pleasures that only destroy;
Come to the fountain of heavenly joy;
Come to the feast so abundant and free,
All are invited, O come unto Me! [Refrain]

3 Now from the sighing and murmuring cease,
Rest on the bosom of infinite peace;
Balm for the weary and comfort are thine,
Rest on the bosom of mercy divine. [Refrain]

4 Come for the power to serve and obey,
Trust in the promise and fervently pray,
Wisdom and guidance are promised to thee,
Go to none other, but come unto Me. [Refrain]
