May I come to thee

Full Text

1 Gentle Saviour, meek and lowly
Precious name so dear to me
I would take Thy yoke and bear it;
May I come and learn of Thee?

Gentle Saviour, meek and lowly,
At Thy feet I humbly bow;
Hear, O hear my earnest pleading,
Seal the heart I offer now.

2 I would make a full surrender,
Of my all, to Thy control;
In the path of life eternal,
Only Thou canst lead my soul. [Refrain]

3 I am weak and heavy-laden,
On Thy bosom let me rest;
From the power of sin defend me;
Be Thou still my welcome guest. [Refrain]
