Representative Text

1 O weary one, thirsty and faint,
Say, why wilt thou languish and die?
The world has no balm for thy poor broken heart,
Thy need it can never supply.

Oh, come and be happy with me
Come, drink of the water so free.
The water of life
Thy Redeemer will give,
Is flowing this moment for thee.

2 O weary one, where wilt thou go?
Oppressed with thy sorrow and care;
Why turn from the light that is shining so bright?
When Jesus, thy Savior is there. [Refrain]

3 O weary one, why dost thou wait?
So near to the kingdom of grace,
What hinders thee now from believing thy Lord,
And earnestly seeking his face? [Refrain]

4 O weary one, tarry not here,
For what wilt thou gain by delay?
God’s mercy extended, invites you to come;
Then grieve not the spirit away. [Refrain]
