Representative Text

1 Wondrous the word, sweetly ‘tis heard,
Sounding the ages through;
Word of the King, comfort to bring,
Promise of love so true,
Promise of love so true.

Come to me, ye weary,
List to the voice so blest;
Come, heavy laden,
O come unto me and rest.
Come unto me and rest.

2 Master of all, heed we Thy call,
Bidding our hearts rejoice;
Telling of rest, peace ever blest,
List we the Saviour’s voice,
List we the Saviour’s voice. [Refrain]

3 King from above, boundless Thy love,
Changeless and deep and strong;
Down through the years, calming our fears,
Sounds like the sweetest song,
Sounds like the sweetest song. [Refrain]
