Representative Text

1 O come, weary one, to the only sure Refuge,
Where mercy and pardon are boundless and free;
O haste with thy burden of sin and of sorrow,
Thy gracious Redeemer is waiting for thee.

Refrain:
Come, O come,
Where mercy and pardon are boundless and free;
Then haste with thy burden of sin and of sorrow,
Thy gracious Redeemer is waiting for thee.

2 O come, weary one, for the day beams are fading;
Say, why on the desert afar wilt thou roam?
The arms of the Saviour will gladly enfold thee,
He longs with forgiveness to welcome thee home. [Refrain]

3 O come, weary one, for the night clouds pursue thee;
How darkly they frown on the cold mountain’s brow;
The voice of the tempest is wailing around thee,
And none but the Saviour can shelter thee now. [Refrain]

4 O come, weary one, He is urging thee onward;
One step o’er the threshold and life thou shalt gain;
The light of His love thro’ the darkness is breaking;
All glory to Jesus, the Lamb that was slain! [Refrain]
