342b. Art thou weary, art thou languid?

1 Art thou weary, art thou languid,
Art thou sore distrest?
“Come to me," saith One, “and coming,
Be at rest.”

2 Hath He marks to lead me to Him
If He be my guide?
“In His Feet and Hands are wound-prints,
And His Side.”

3 Is there diadem, as monarch,
That His Brow adorns?
“Yea, a Crown, in very surety,
But of thorns.”

4 If I find Him, if I follow,
What His guerdon here?
“Many a sorrow, many a labor,
Many a tear.”

5 If I still hold closely to Him,
What hath He at last?
“Sorrow vanquished, labor ended,
Jordan past!”

6 If I ask Him to receive me,
Will He say me nay?
“Not till earth, and not till heaven
Pass away.”

7 Finding, following, keeping, struggling,
Is He sure to bless?
Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs,
Answer, "Yes.”
