Representative Text

1 O troubled heart, why seek in vain
The balm of rest from earth to gain,
While Jesus waits your King to reign,
And all your sins forgive?

Awake, arise, no more delay,
He calls you now, His voice obey;
The loving words He speaks today,
O hear, and you shall live.

2 He calls again, on Him believe,
His gift of grace thro’ faith receive;
Your truest Friend no longer grieve,
But haste your heart to give. [Refrain]

3 To Jesus come, and at His feet
That precious Name with praise repeat;
O trust Him now, and learn how sweet
The peace His love will give. [Refrain]
