Representative Text

1 Saviour, I’m weak and weary!
Heavy has been my load,
Toilsome and long the journey
Over life’s rugged road;
often have foes assailed me,
Often have storms distressed;
Fain I would lay my burden
Down at Thy feet and rest!
Fain I would lay my burden
Down at Thy feet and rest!

2 Saviour, I’m weak and weary!
Sore has the conflict been,
Striving against temptation,
Lab’ring a crown to win;
Sowing with earnest longing,
Weeping no fruits to see;
Thirsty and faint and helpless,
Saviour, I come to Thee!
Thirsty and faint and helpless,
Saviour, I come to Thee!

3 Saviour, I’m weak and weary!
No other friend can know
All of my heart’s deep anguish,
No other feel as Thou;
Once Thou didst suffer sorrows
Keener that all my grief;
Only Thy warm compassion
Now can afford relief;
Only Thy warm compassion
Now can afford relief.

4 Saviour, I’m weak and weary!
Hold me upon Thy breast,
E’en as a loving mother
Soothing her child to rest;
Safe in Thy arms reposing,
Saviour, O let me stay
Until this night of sorrow
Ends in a blissful day!
Until this night of sorrow
Ends in a blissful day!

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
