1 Does the gospel word proclaim
Rest for those that weary be?
Then, my soul, put in thy claim;
'Tis that promise speaks to thee.
2 Marks of grace I cannot show,
All polluted is my best;
But I weary am, I know,
And the weary long for rest.
3 Burdened with a load of sin.
Harassed with tormenting doubt;
Hourly conflicts from within,
Hourly crosses from without.
4 All my little strength is gone,
Sink must I without supply;
Sure upon the earth is none
Can more weary be than I.
5 In the ark the weary dove
Found a welcome resting place;
Thus my spirit longs to prove
Rest in Christ, the Ark of grace.
