Representative Text

1 Wouldst thou, O weary soul, be blest?
In Christ the Lord thy Savior see?
His grace alone can give thee rest,
And lo! He calleth, “Come to Me!”

"O come to Me, O come to Me,"
The Savior calleth, "Come to Me;
Ye heavy laden, come to Me,
And I will give, will give you rest."

2 He does not wait for greater worth,
Or more of holiness in thee;
He brings good news to all the earth,
And still He calleth, "Come to Me." [Refrain]

3 Hast thou not sinned ten thousand times?
His pardoning grace will set thee free;
Count unbelief the worst of crimes,
And trust thy Savior’s “Come to Me.” [Refrain]

4 Eternal life is in His word;
He asks thee now His child to be;
No sweeter sound was ever heard
Than His most gracious “Come to Me.” [Refrain]

5 Be this thine answer now, and here:
"Since Thou has kindly called for me,
Thy tender love dispels my fear;
I come, I come, O Lord, to Thee." [Refrain]
