Representative Text

1 Hasten, ye weary, why do you linger?
Waters are flowing that sparkle for you,
Close by the wayside, cool and refreshing;
Come, and your vigor and strength renew.

There you may rest, happy and blest,
Safe with the Shepherd kind;
He from danger will protect you,
Rest forever you there shall find.

2 Hasten, ye weary, green are the pastures
Where your Redeemer will bid you repose;
Great are the mercies, rich are the blessings,
Falling in love till your cup o’erflows. [Refrain]

3 Come to the banquet he is preparing,
Under his banner you then shall recline;
There on his bosom he will enfold you,
Causing his light in your soul to shine. [Refrain]
