Come unto Jesus, all ye that labor,
All that are weary, sad and oppressed;

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.”

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.”

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

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

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
