1 Have you found that Friend and Saviour
Who has died your soul to save?
Who o’er sin and death triumphant,
Passed the portals of the grave?

Have you found Him, do you know Him,
Do you rest within His love?
Are you looking onward, upward,
To His promised home above?

2 Do you bring to Him your burdens?
He will help you all to share,
Heard you not His invitation,
“Cast on me your every care”? [Chorus]

3 He will help you bear your sorrows,
Well He knows your every grief,
He has borne them all before you
And will send your soul relief. [Chorus]

4 Trust in Him, your only Saviour;
Give to Him your heart today,
And, with the found of cleansing,
He will wash your sins away. [Chorus]
