Representative Text

1 Weary soul, the Lord is near,
He will save you, do not fear;
O’er life’s storm-swept Galilee,
He will come to rescue thee.

Refrain:
O’er life’s billows wild and chilling,
Hear him calling “It is I!”
With his voice the wild waves stilling,
Do not fear, your Lord is nigh.

2 Troubled soul, with sorrow press’d,
Come and Christ will give you rest;
Ev’ry burden he will bear,
All your trials, all your care. [Refrain]

3 Sin-sick soul, why longer wait?
Hasten e’er it be too late!
Jesus shows his wounded side,
Can you spurn the crucified? [Refrain]
