Representative Text

1 Somebody’s here with an aching heart,
No rest and no peace within;
Somebody’s here and the teardrops start
As God convicts of sin.

Refrain:
Jesus will give you rest,
Jesus will give you rest,
Turn from your sin,
Call now on Him,
For Jesus will give you rest.

2 Somebody’s here with a burden’d soul,
A heart that’s inclined to pray;
Seeking for cleansing, for peace and pow’r,
To you doth the Spirit say; [Refrain]

3 Somebody’s here whom the Lord doth seek,
My brother, that somebody’s you;
Come as you are, make no delay,
And prove ev’ry promise true. [Refrain]

4 Somebody else now would hear the news,
The glorious gospel sound,
Jesus has died all from sin to save,
Go tell it to all around. [Refrain]
