Representative Text

1 O hearts that are weary of toiling and tears,
Come closer to Jesus, and banish your fears;
Tho’ many your trials, your crosses and cares,
Remember his promise to answer your pray’rs.

Refrain:
O hearts that are weary of toiling and tears,
Come closer to Jesus, and banish your fears.

2 O, why are ye troubled, when Jesus the Lord
Has left for your comfort the light of his word?
He tells you to trust him, whatever betide,
And gives the assurance that he will provide. [Refrain]

3 Come closer to Jesus, and lean on his breast,
Come closer to Jesus, your refuge and rest;
O, heed not the billows that darkly may roll,
His smile is the sunshine of peace to the soul. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ oft on life’s ocean your vessel is tossed,
With Jesus our pilot you cannot be lost;
Your sails may be shattered and torn by the blast,
But into the harbor he’ll bring you at last. [Refrain]
