Full Text

1 When I am weary,
Toiling, oppressed—
Life’s journey dreary,
Hopeless, unblest,—

Lift up thy portal,
City immortal;
High, heav’nly portal,
Open to me.

2 When I am straying
Far from my God—
Duty delaying,
Roaming abroad,— [Refrain]

3 Wand’ring in darkness,
Sorrow and sin,
Jesus my Saviour
Bids me come in. [Refrain]

4 When, at death’s river,
Trembling I stand—
Earth gone forever,
Judgment at hand,— [Refrain]
