Representative Text

1 Father in heaven, thou hast freely given
This precious call, “Come, weary one, to me;”
In thee believing, all my needs perceiving,
Now do I come; I bring my soul to thee.

2 Life has its trials, and its stern denials;
Sin oft assails, and I am prone to fall;
O be thou near me, strengthen, keep and cheer me;
Help me to live, and overcome them all.

3 Thy love possessing, Star of ev’ry blessing,
What need I more along my pilgrim way?
Thy praises singing, to thy cross I’m clinging,
Hoping to rise to life’s eternal day.
