Representative Text

1 Soul, art thou weary because of the journey?
Come to the Christ, for His mercies are free;
Ask Him for rest from the toil and the striving,
Jesus has promised, He’ll give it to thee.

Refrain:
Weary from toiling and weak from the conflict,
Come to the Christ, for His mercies are free;
Ask Him in faith for the things that are needed,
Jesus has promised, He’ll give it to thee.

2 Soul, art thou weak when the battle is raging?
Come to the Christ, for His blessings are free;
Ask Him for strength in the day of the conflict,
Jesus has promised, He’ll give it to thee. [Refrain]

3 Soul, art thou longing for peace that’s untroubled?
Come to the Christ, for His bounties are free;
Ask Him for comfort and courage and gladness,
Jesus has promised, He’ll give them to thee. [Refrain]
