Representative Text

1 Go and tell Jesus, O desolate heart,
Go and tell Jesus how weary thou art;
Weary of trying without him to live,
Seeking for comfort the world cannot give.

Go and tell Jesus,—
tell him how weary thou art,
Go, thy Saviour is waiting,
Waiting to comfort thy heart.

2 Go and tell Jesus, so ready to hear,
Whisper thy sorrow alone in his ear;
Long hast thou grieved him, but still he is kind;
Ask, he will give thee; go, seek thou and find. [Chorus]

3 Narrow the gate but a light thou wilt see
Shining above it, and shining for thee;
Go, and, believing, acknowledge thy sin;
Knock, he will open and welcome thee in. [Chorus]

4 Go and tell Jesus thy soul is oppressed,
Go and tell Jesus ‘tis longing for rest,
Helpless, dependent, bend low at his throne,
Clinging by faith to his merits alone. [Chorus]
