Representative Text

1 Lo, the day is over,
See its fading smile;
Hark, the voice that calleth,
Come and rest awhile.

Rest beside the fountain
Flowing softly now;
In its cooling waters
Lave thy aching brow.

2 Come alone to Jesus,
In His secret place;
Thou art faint, and needest
His refreshing grace. [Refrain]

3 Come alone to Jesus
Thro’ the gate of prayer;
Faithful to His promise,
He will meet thee there. [Refrain]
