Representative Text

1. When your heart with life’s burdens is weary,
And the pathway around you is drear,
There is one who is always beside you,
Your cry of distress He will hear.

Go tell your story to Jesus,
He is your Savior and Guide;
He came from above, in infinite love,
To save you on Calv’ry He died;
Trusting this gracious Redeemer,
You may your courage renew;
Go tell your story to Jesus,
Find out how much He loves you.

2. Come to Me is the kind invitation
Of Jesus, your Savior and Lord;
Lean on Him, there is rest in His bosom,
Find comfort in His holy Word. [Refrain]

3. When the trials of life are all ended,
When you reach the glad home of the blest,
You will dwell in the glory with Jesus,
Forever with Him you will rest. [Refrain]
