953. Come unto Me (Hewitt)

1. Come unto Jesus, all ye that labor,
All that are weary, sad and oppressed;
Still He is calling, oh, friend and neighbor,
Come unto Me, and I will give you rest.

Refrain
Down thro’ the ages, sweetly ’tis ringing,
This word of Jesus, come and be blest ;
Sweeter than carols, angels are singing,
Come unto Me, and I will give you rest.

2. Bring Him the burden, heavily pressing,
Tell Him the sorrows hid in your breast;
Sin and transgression, freely confessing,
Come unto Him, and He will give you rest. [Refrain]

3. Lose not a moment, haste to your Savior,
Ere the bright day-beams fade in the west;
Asking His mercy, seeking His favor,
Come unto Him, and He will give you rest. [Refrain]

4. Come unto Jesus, Savior and Brother,
Surely you need Him, purest and best;
Truer than father, fonder than mother,
Come unto Him, and He will give you rest. [Refrain]
