1 Stay, weary child, the Saviour calls,
Oh, turn and hear his gentle voice;
Come, now, to him be reconciled,
And he will bid thy heart rejoice.

Refrain:
Oh, hear the Saviour’s voice,
He’s calling now to thee,
Oh, make him now your choice,
He offers pardon, full and free.

2 Oh hear the loving voice that calls,
Forsake the dearest paths of sin,
For at the gates of mercy, now,
The Saviour waits to let thee in. [Refrain]

3 Then, weary child, to Jesus come,
All weak and helpless as thou art,
Thy burden to the Saviour bring,
And he will cheer thy drooping heart. [Refrain]
