1. Weary spirit, seeking rest,
In the Savior repose;
Lay thy burden at His feet,
He will lighten thy woes.

Come, come believing, wholly trusting, be free;
There is room in the presence of Jesus for thee,
Come, come believing, wholly trusting, be free;
There is room in the presence of Jesus for thee.

2. Art thou wand’ring from the fold?
Take this promise divine:
If repentant thou wilt come,
Jesus’ pardon is thine. [Refrain]

3. Laden soul, with sin oppressed,
Jesus beckons thee home;
Wilt thou rest in His embrace?
Leave thy sorrow and come. [Refrain]

4. Weary spirit, burdened one,
Seek the Comforter nigh;
Rest confiding in His love;
Jesus hears every sigh. [Refrain]
