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?

Chorus:
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]
