Representative Text

1 Weary, oh, yes, thou art weary,
Bearing thy burden of sin;
Clouds of the night are above thee,
Fear and temptation within.

Hear the sweet voice that is pleading with thee,
Pleading with thee, pleading with thee,
Hear the sweet voice that is pleading with thee,
Tenderly pleading with thee.

2 Lonely, oh, yes, thou art lonely,
Plodding thy desolate way,
Far from the arms that would shield thee,
Far from the light and the day. [Chorus]

3 Troubled, oh, yes, thou art troubled,
Comfort has flown from thy breast;
Only in Jesus thy refuge,
Only in Him is thy rest. [Chorus]

4 Weary and lonely and troubled,
Broken in spirit and heart,
Come to the gracious Redeemer:
Child of His mercy thou art. [Chorus]
