Representative Text

1 Hark! I hear my Saviour say,
Weary child, lean on Me;
Smooth will be thy onward way,
Lean, my child, on Me.
I will strengthen, love and cheer,
In the night or daylight clear;
Stilling doubts, of gloomy fear,
Lean, my child, on Me.

2 In thy weakness heed the call,
Weary child, lean on Me;
Simply trusting that is all,
Lean, my child, on Me.
Like a lone and weary dove,
Thee I'll shelter from above;
"God is wisdom, God is love,"
Lean, my child, on Me.

3 Over Jordan's chilling stream,
Weary child, lean on Me;
See, beyond, the home land gleam,
Lean, my child, on Me.
Friends and loved-ones shall unite
In that realm of glory bright,
In that Eden land of light,
Lean, my child, on Me.
