O weary one burdened with sin and care,
For refuge quickly fly!
The door of God’s mercy is open wide,
And Jesus is passing by.


Rest I will give you, rest, sweet rest,
O hear the Savior gently say;
Rest I will give you rest, sweet, rest,
Will you not come? O come today.

I suffered and died that you might have life,
Hear now the Savior say;
My comfort and peace I will give to you,
O come then without delay.


In pastures green I will make you feed,
And living waters give;
And there you’ll find rest from your care and toil,
Then come to Me now and live.
