1 "Come unto me, ye weary,
and I will give you rest."
O blessed voice of Jesus,
which comes to hearts oppressed!
It tells of benediction,
of pardon, grace, and peace,
of joy that hath no ending,
of love which cannot cease.
2 "Come unto me, dear children,
and I will give you light."
O loving voice of Jesus,
which comes to cheer the night!
Our hearts were filled with sadness,
and we had lost our way;
but morning brings us gladness,
and songs the break of day.
3 "Come unto me, ye fainting, and I will give you life."
O peaceful voice of Jesus,
which comes to end our strife!
The foe is stern and eager,
the fight is fierce and long;
but thou hast made us mighty,
and stronger than the strong.
4 "And whosoever cometh
I will not cast him out."
O patient love of Jesus,
which drives away our doubt;
which calls us, very sinners,
unworthy though we be,
of love so free and boundless,
to come, dear Lord, to thee!
