Representative Text

1 Trust not the path before thee,
O wand’rer, cease to roam!
The vail of night hangs o’er thee,
Oh, thou art far from home.

Turn unto me, turn unto me!
Hark! ‘tis the blessed One pleading with thee;
Turn unto me, turn unto me,
Turn thou, my child, unto me.

2 Was ever love so tender?
Was ever love so free?
Then give thy heart to Jesus,
Who gave his life for thee. [Refrain]

3 Oh, come, thou heavy-laden,
With all thy guilt oppressed;
Now take his yoke upon thee,
And find in him thy rest. [Refrain]

4 A step, and he will meet thee;
A word, and he’ll forgive;
Believe, and faith will save thee;
Oh, look! and thou shalt live. [Refrain]
