Ven, alma que lloras

Representative Text

1 Ven, alma que lloras,
Ven al Salvador;
En tus tristes horas
Dile tu dolor.
Ven, dile tu duelo;
Ven tal como estás;
Habla sin recelo
Y no llores más.

2 Toda tu amargura
Dile a tu Señor,
Tu pena y tristura,
Engaños y error;
En su tierno seno
Descanso hallarás;
Ven, porque Él es bueno,
Y no llores más.

3 Ven y di al cansado
Que acepte la cruz;
Guía al angustiado
Hacia el buen Jesús;
La bendita nueva
De celeste paz
A los tristes lleva,
Y no loores más.

Bachelor, Mary A. This is the name which Mr. Sankey gives as the writer of "Go, bury thy sorrow," p. 1566, i. He adds that it originally began, "Bury thy sorrow, hide it with care." It was found by P. P. Bliss in a newspaper, and altered by him for musical reasons. See My Life and Sacred Songs, by I. D. Sankey, 1906. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)  Go to person page >

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
